This research project aim satverifying the hypothesis
a) detrimental weed communities can be disrupted through strategic diversification of crop rotations without compromising species diversity and over-all crop production;
b) perennial weeds can be suppressed in the post-harvest period by improved cover crop establishment and pertinent selection of cover crop species;
c) crop mixtures and variety mixtures have greater suppressive abilities against weeds than the sole cropor variety;
d) on-farm practices of crop diversification are related to weed pressure and species composition.
The project involves 5 partners from five countries: Denmark, Finland, Germany, Latvia and Poland.
