This tool provides practical recommendations for intercropping peas and barley and explains the benefits such as barley providing support to the peas, preventing lodging
and, thus, reducing yield loss. It also increases the soil cover and thus suppresses weeds. Growing two crops at the same time also mitigates the risk of yield loss in one of the crops. With intercropping there is a higher land utilisation per hectare than with pure stand.

Summary translation

Diese Arbeitshilfe enthält praktische Empfehlungen für den Zwischenfruchtanbau von Erbsen und Gerste und erläutert die Vorteile, wie z. B. die Unterstützung der Erbsen durch die Gerste, das Verhindern von Lagerbildung
und somit die Ertragseinbußen verringert. Außerdem erhöht er die Bodenbedeckung und unterdrückt so Unkraut. Der gleichzeitige Anbau von zwei Kulturen mindert auch das Risiko von Ertragseinbußen bei einer der beiden Kulturen. Beim Zwischenfruchtanbau ist die Flächennutzung pro Hektar höher als beim Reinbestand.

EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Learn about the benefits of cultivating half-leafless grain peas and barley.
What problem does the tool address?:Grain peas are a valuable feed crop containing around 20% crude protein. Cultivated as a pure crop, grain peas are prone to lodging, which often leads to late weed infestation, soil contaminated grains and yield loss.
What solution does the tool offer?:The cultivation of half-leafless grain peas and barley prevents lodging and quality/yield loss. After several years of trials in Switzerland, the intercropping of grain peas and barley be-came a standard to cultivate grain peas.
