Agroforestry Innovation Networks (AFINET) (AFINET)

Start date: Jan 1, 2017, End date: Dec 31, 2019,

Agroforestry (AF) is the practice of deliberately integrating woody vegetation (trees or shrubs) with crop and/or animal systems to benefit from the resulting ecological and economic interactions. Research activities developed by AFINET partners indicates that appropriate application of AF principles and practices is a key avenue to help the European Union to achieve more sustainable methods of fo ...

Optimising Subsidiary Crop Applications in Rotations (OSCAR)

Start date: Apr 1, 2012, End date: Mar 31, 2016,

There is a need to improve sustainability in farming systems particularly through soil care and improvement, but not at the expense of productivity. One approach is to focus on a comprehensive advance in conservation tillage. This will be developed from improved ways of integrating subsidiary crops (SC) as living or dead mulches or cover crops with the main crops in rotations so as to simultaneous ...

Gentle remediation of trace element contaminated land (GREENLAND)

Start date: Jan 1, 2011, End date: Dec 31, 2014,

"Gentle remediation options (g.r.o.) include various (mostly plant based) approaches to remediate trace element contaminated soils at low cost and without significant negative effects for the environment. Although g.r.o. comprise very innovative and efficient technologies, they are still not widely used as practical site solution due to several reasons of hindrance for applying g.r.o. as practical ...
