Summary

According to the results, the selected special crops may attract pollinators such as
honeybees and flower flies more than conventionally cultivated crops. Also, the
number of weed species among special crops may be higher than the number of
weeds identified among barley and timothy. The high amount of dry weight and
weed species among the special crops may be due to the challenges of herbicide
treatments. These results may be used when strategies for more diversified
cropping systems, where selected special crops could be cultivated as a rotation
with conventionally corps, are planned.
