Mixed cropping for a transition to ecology based agriculture

Arable farmers, researchers and chain partners are joining forces to achieve a breakthrough in the transition to sustainable arable farming in the five-year research programme CropMix. The focus is on increasing crop diversity through strip cropping. By doing so, we want to bring ecology and arable farming together and drive the societal transition towards a more sustainable agricultural system.

MoestuinMix

Een veelgehoorde vraag van akkerbouwers die strokenteelt of andere vormen van mengteelt overwegen is: welke gewassen gaan goed samen? Om daarachter te komen schakelen we graag de hulp in van ervaren en onervaren moestuiniers om verschillende combinaties te testen. Doe mee aan ons MoestuinMix, een samenwerking met AVVN samen natuurlijk tuinieren, and test different crop combinations in your own garden.
