Projects in area: ARABLE CROPS

The interactive European network for industrial crops and their applications in the changing millennium
IENICA - (QLRT-2000-00111)
Markets for non-food crop products are emerging, but development is hampered by uncoordinated efforts, lack of sector structure and produce specifications. End users are often unaware of the benefits and opportunities for non-food products. There has been much 'science push' but market orientation is now the key to success in this sector. This project ... More (full abstract).

Silvoarable agroforestry for Europe
SAFE - (QLRT-2000-00560)
The purpose of the SAFE project is to encourage Europe to take advantage of silvoarable agroforestry systems - wide-spaced trees and crops mixed in the same agricultural parcels. However, such systems are currently not attractive to farmers due to policy adjustment. The introduction of wide-spaced, high-quality trees on European farmland will be modelled ...
