Problem
The growing demand for protein-rich feed has so far been largely met by imported soya. This contradicts the sustainability principle of organic farming. The cultivation of soy and other grain legumes in monoculture is difficult in Switzerland.
Solution
As practical trials conducted by the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture FiBL have shown, mixed farming can significantly improve the yield reliability and cost-effectiveness of local protein production. This leaflet summarises the current state of knowledge on the cultivation of grain legumes in mixed crops with cereals and provides recommendations for a successful cultivation in Switzerland.
Description
This leaflet describes the suitability of the most promising grain legume/cereal mixtures that were tested in field trials, and provides in-depth information on the cultivation, economic efficiency and use of proven mixtures in Switzerland.
