A wide variety of crop species in crop rotations has turned out an essential means to obtain diversification in organic cropping systems. Moreover, the potential of cover crops to assist the main crop in weed suppression has been studied in Denmark, Finland and Latvia. Long-term field experiments in Denmark and Latvia demonstrated that crops with different life cycles and life spans in crop sequence resulted in a relatively low and manageable pressure of annual weeds. The study was part of the PRODIVA project (Core Organic Plus) in which crop diversification for better weed management has been studied and presented in the 18th EWRS Symposium.
