INTERCROP Informe resumido

Intercropping grain legumes and wheat improves the end-use quality of wheat

Intercropping wheat with faba bean, wheat with pea regularly increased the nitrogen concentration of the cereal grain, and less regularly, the nitrogen concentration of the grain legume. Sulphur concentration of the cereal was also increased by intercropping, but to a lesser extent compared with effects on nitrogen concentration. For example, nitrogen concentration (g/kg) in wheat additively intercropped with faba bean was increased by a weighted average of 8% across all sites, but sulphur concentration was only increased by 4%. Intercropping wheat with grain legumes increased SDS-sedimentation volume, Hagberg falling number and loaf quality of the wheat.
