The Project

ReMIX. The Project

ReMIX is a H2020 multi-actor project that will allow designing cropping systems based on agro-ecology for the benefit of farmers and the whole EU agricultural community.

ReMIX will exploit the benefits of species mixtures to design more diversified and resilient agro-ecological arable cropping systems. Based on a multi-actor approach, ReMIX will produce new knowledge that is both scientifically credible and socially valuable in conventional and organic agriculture. The project will tackle practical questions and co-design ready-to-use practical solutions. The project will span from the specification of end-user needs and the co-design of in-field and on-farm experiments to demonstrations with evaluation of new varieties and practices. ReMIX will contribute to the adoption of productive and resilient agricultural systems.

ReMIX Objectives

  • Overcome barriers to stimulate the adoption of species mixtures by farmers and in agri-food chains.
  • Unravel mechanisms of plant-plant interactions to maximize resource use efficiency.
  • Determine the role of species mixtures in controlling diseases, pests and weeds and alleviating yield damages.
  • Demonstrate the role of species mixtures in improving ecosystem service provision and development of resilience to biotic stress.
  • Identify key traits and create novel breeding and phenotyping methods. Generate novel breeding material to grain legume / cereal mixtures.
  • Develop generic rules for assembling species for efficient cash crop production using process-based simulation models.
  • Develop new management techniques to optimize species mixtures performance.
  • Optimize settings and specifications for agricultural machinery for harvesting and separating grains.
  • Develop a toolbox, a serious game and technical booklets for farmers and advisors.
