Looking back on the first year

The first year of CropMix is pretty much over. What a great start we have made. Some highlights should not be missed:

1️⃣ The scientific team is almost complete with 18 PhD candidates. ➡ Read more
2️⃣ 25 pioneering arable farmers are participating. ➡  Read more
3️⃣ Our field technicians visited all arable farmers and reference fields 8 times this year, in all weathers, to carry out the biodiversity measurements. ➡ Read more
4️⃣ We had three nice consortium meetings in Wageningen, Lelystad and Den Bosch.
5️⃣ On 23 November, we kicked off the living labs with no fewer than 9 projects in which consortium partners will work together. ➡ Read more

In 2024, we will share the first results, organise a summer school for our PhD candidates and start MoestuinMix: our bug science project in the vegetable garden. ➡ Read more

Thank you to all participating crop farmers, researchers and partners, without whom CropMix would not exist. We wish everyone happy holidays and on to year 2!
