Developing legume cropping: looking forward

Posted: 07.06.2021
Europe is self-sufficient in most agricultural commodities that it can produce. It is even a net exporter of cereals. This remarkable productivity can be attributed to specialization in high yielding cereals and oilseeds supported by synthetic nitrogen fertilizer and large imports of soy from North and South America. However, this productivity comes at a cost for the environment linked to imbalances in European cropping systems.

This article is one out of 15 book chapters. All chapters of the book are available on the Hub.
