Summary

Crop agrobiodiversity is an asset to improve organic and low-input wheat production, but a clear framework is necessary to translate scientific evidences into practice. Here we present results from a field experiment on common wheat, focusing of cultivar identity, genetic heterogeneity and on the inclusion of a legume living mulch. This experiment provided us insights on how to improve yield, yield stability and weed reduction through adequate cultivar choice and diversification of the crop stand.
