These two projects focus on developing and improving intercropping practices to diversify crop systems. The meeting aims to attract both scientists and agricultural stakeholders from a wide range of regions and farming systems to obtain feedback on research findings and industry-relevant tools, discuss intercropping uptake and practical application, and guide future developments in intercropping research.
Invited speakers include:
- Professor John Vandermeer (Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Michigan, USA)
- Professor Maria Finckh (University of Kassel, Germany)
- Professor Bernhard Schmid (University Of Zürich, Switzerland)
- Dr Caroline Drummond MBE (Linking Environment and Farming, UK) will chair a science-farmer forum/Q&A on intercropping practices
Abstracts can be submitted until 1st June 2020.
