Crop Diversification Cluster

The crop diversification cluster brings together partner organisations from countries across Europe to increase the impact of crop diversification research and encourage sustained uptake of diversification measures by European farmers and through innovations across the agri-value chain.

Five H2020 projects are working together with DiverIMPACTS in the crop diversification cluster:

The cluster projects are working together to demonstrate the benefits of crop diversification to farmers and society, and to engage with stakeholders in the upstream and downstream value chains, by transferring knowledge in:

  • Barriers to crop diversification and their solutions
  • Innovative cropping methods, decision tools and new resources for crop diversification
  • New end user focused approaches and field demonstrations across pedo-climatic regions of Europe to share innovations and crop diversification experiences
  • Multi-criteria assessment of system performance at field, farm, value chain and landscape levels
  • Policy recommendations to facilitate uptake of crop diversification
  • Communicating joint activities in the cluster and disseminating joint output

European Conference on Crop Diversification

The conference is being organized by DiverIMPACT in collaboration with the crop diversification cluster. It will be held on September 18-21, 2019 in Budapest, Hungary. The conference will explore how we can achieve the full potential of cropping system diversification for improved productivity, delivery of ecosystem services and resource-efficient and sustainable value chains.
