Agronomic case studies in Legume Futures

Posted: 21.06.2021
Legume Futures, "Legume-supported crop rotations for Europe", is an international research project funded under the European FP7 programme. It has 20 partners in 13 countries. The project aims to develop and assess legume-supported cropping systems that improve the economic and environmental performance of farming in Europe.
The project aims to make use of both data and professional expertise in various ways. Partners have contributed data on crop yields, biological nitrogen fixation and greenhouse gas releases for use in modelling of the biophysical and socioeconomic impacts of legumes in crop rotations.
This work reported here aimed to capture the status quo ante in terms of expertise at each of our partner institutions. It is constructed as a set of "case studies", in the sociological sense of the term, in which experts were asked about their knowledge and opinions on various legume-related issues.
In addition to the work presented here, five partner organisations have provided detailed data sets from which potential cropping systems are being developed and assessed. That additional case study research is the subject of further reports. Each case presented here is set out largely as the correspondent sent it. Editing has been confined to grammar and clarifications of presentation. This is intended as a "living document" that can be updated as the correspondents have new insights.
