What is AGROMIX?

AGROMIX is a research and innovation project that supports the transition towards resilient farming,
efficient land use, and sustainable agricultural value chains in Europe. To do so, a team of 28 partners from
across the region work with farmers and land managers to create practical tools that support farmers to
transition from conventional agriculture towards agroforestry and mixed farming methods, and to
generate policy recommendations that would support this transition.

What are the benefits of agroforestry and mixed farming?

Integrating trees with crops and/or livestock captures carbon, regenerates soil, increases biodiversity, improves animal welfare, diversifies farmers’ income, and can increase productivity in comparison to conventional agriculture production.

Where does the project’s name come from?

‘AGROMIX’ fuses the two main agricultural practices that the project supports: Agroforestry (AGRO-) and mixed farming (-MIX). These two systems integrate trees, crops and/or livestock in one land area, and are considered to be more resilient farming and land use systems than conventional methods.
