Summary

– Intercropping of cereals and grain legumes is a technology to enhance biodiversity in organic agro-ecosystems, enhance and stabilize yields and make better use of plant growth resources. Here we report the preliminary results of the EU FP 5 research project “Intercrop” carried out in five European regions. The project demonstrates several significant benefits which could be exploited to a greater degree in European organic farming .
