Practice Abstracts 2nd batch

17 more Practice Abstracts on intercropping can now be read, translated and disseminated. Check our list.

A total of 29 Practice Abstracts have been produced to translate the knowledge acquired through the 4 years project into practical recommendations for farmers willing to intercrop

The key results from WP1-6 have been processed and now delivered in the form of easily accessible end-user material, using both the EIP-Agri common format, but also a friendlier layout which includes pictures, drawings, and shorter sections. A list of 29 of these fact sheets has just been published on this site. These are the titles:

1. Intercropping grain-legumes and cereals for improved protein concentration in cereals

2. Improving crop yield stability by intercropping 

3. Services expected by farmers from intercropping practices
