This report is concerned with the socio-economic aspects of legume cultivation. One of the key instruments of modern cropping system design is the development of agronomically and economically highly efficient and environmental sound crop rotations. In our first project meetings we agreed to restrict the project works to conventional farming in order to limit the workload and allow for a high quality level of the research works.
A modelling approach was developed to systematically generate and agronomically evaluate a large set of crop rotation options. The objective of the report is the description of this approach and its capability to facilitate the design of novel cropping systems including legume crops.
The modelled crop rotations with and without legumes that were generated by this work serve as a basis for further socio-economic and environmental assessments of legume-supported cropping systems within the Legume Futures project.
