Demonstration trials in Germany and Italy

Intercropping of pea and barley was demonstrated in three organic farms in Northern Germany and two organic farms in southern Italy. Demonstration trials were used in dissemination of the intercropping methodology to visiting farmer groups. Demonstration trials confirmed some of the main conclusion from the scientific experiments, eg. intercropping advantage and improvement of cereal protein quality.
