Mixed Farming Systems: Livestock/Cash crops

How to develop livestock / cash crop interactions and promote their benefits as a sustainable alternative to farm or territorial specialisation?


This Focus Group is ongoing.

Tasks:

  • Identify, describe with adequate examples and compare different combinations of livestock/cash crop systems both at farm and/or territorial level. Provide examples of different mixed agricultural systems other than livestock/cash crops.
  • Where relevant and possible, describe environmental, economic and social impacts produced by the (re)-introduction of mixed systems into specialised farms/territories.
  • Analyse cases of re-introduction of mixed farming at farm and/or at landscape/territorial level: what made it possible? What stopped the process? Lessons learnt.
  • Identify remaining research and innovation needs and provide ideas for Operational Groups and other innovative projects.
