The LegumeGap survey with farmers from nine EU countries is up and running! More than 800 responses have been collected, informing us on the reasons for yield gaps of major legume crops. Spread the link to our survey!Read More
Increasing productivity and sustainability of European plant protein production by closing the grain legume yield gap
The LegumeGap project identifies the potential contribution of new cultivars, optimal management practices, and farmers’ knowledge in closing the yield and protein gaps. It contributes to reducing legume yield variability and EU-level protein shortfall and optimizing the environmental performance of legume production in Europe. We focus on faba bean and soya bean, due to their growing popularity, broad adaptability and high protein concentration in the seeds.
What does the future hold for legumes in food and agricultural systems? This is exactly what we discussed in our hybrid scenario workshop, organised in the frame of the Leibniz Protein Paradoxes, LegumeGap, and LegumesTranslated projects.Read More
