The project aims at an increase of competitiveness and a reduction of the environmental pollution of agricultural production through a diversification of the cropping system and the utilization of favourable symbiotic associations.
The research tasks include:
- reduction of nitrogen input through the utilization of leguminous crops;
- reduction of herbicide input in crop rotations;
- reduced tillage systems;
- alternative crops or alternative crop utilization;
- improvement of native rhizobia and mycorrhiza populations.
