DIVERSIFICATION OF THE CROPPING SYSTEM AND UTILIZATION OF SYMBIOTIC ASSOCIATIONS TO REDUCE PRODUCTION COSTS AND ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION UNDER DRYLAND FARMING IN MEDITERRANEAN REGIONS

Objective



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.
