Dear AGROMIX community,

Agriculture is a leading cause of greenhouse gas emissions, and with increasing food insecurity and a rapidly growing global population, our response to these challenges must begin in the field. At AGROMIX, we believe that it is possible to reduce the environmental impacts of agriculture, whilst simultaneously increasing the quantity and quality of food produced!

To achieve these ambitions, AGROMIX focuses on a variety of ‘landscapes’, addressing the physical, socio-economic, cultural, technological, and political aspects of the land use transition.

We are ready to transform landscapes by delivering new research on how mixed farming and agroforestry systems work, designing models for farmers to implement these practices, and offering policy recommendations for decision makers to support the land use transition.

AGROMIX first in-person General Assembly is taking place very soon in Pisa, Italy! 

The next AGROMIX General Assembly will take place in Pisa, Italy, from the 7th to the 10th of November 2022.  During the meeting, partners and members from the project will discuss the project's outcomes, results and next steps and they will have the chance to visit one trial site of the AGROMIX project or one of the pilot projects located in the Tuscany. 

Scroll down and get to know which are the farms that will be visited! 

Stay tuned!

▲ Opportunities

The British Ecological Society Policy Team is seeking authors to contribute to a new report on regenerative agriculture. The term “regenerative agriculture” is gaining traction and it is increasingly being used in different contexts with a variety of meanings by academics, policy-makers, NGOs and land managers. A robust definition and measurable assessment indicators will be needed to ensure that ecological knowledge supports the transition towards more sustainable agricultural practices. The BES would like to contribute to this debate with a policy report, which will be drafted between November 2022 and July 2023 and will be launched in September 2023.

Month of Agroecology 2022

There is a clear momentum in favor of agroecology in Europe today. A scientific consensus seems to be emerging at the international level. During the second edition of the Month of Agroecology 2022, held from the 17th of October to the 18th of November, Agroecology Europe will draw on collective solutions and create pathways of reflection to instigate a change in our dietary patterns and allow a space for them to be the driving force we need for the transition.

Our food systems are failing. Can trees and forests dish up better diets for everyone? - FOREST NEWS

“A new global food system must produce greater quantities of a more diverse range of nutrient-dense foods rather than only providing more calories. It must also produce these diverse foodstuffs sustainably, reversing current trajectories of land degradation so that production acts as a net carbon sink and reservoir of biodiversity."

Pesticides: More sustainable pest control: what does the future look like? - Food for Europe

“There have been few issues in the European political spectrum to ignite civic action quite like the use of pesticides. Over the years the EU has responded, issuing a series of directives to limit chemical pesticides and drive towards more sustainable pesticide use through what’s known as Integrated Pest Management, or IPM."

Experimenting with plant rotation and intercropping for biodiverse agriculture

Meet Lizelore Vos, who has just begun a plant rotation system to grow potatoes, carrots, chicory, alfalfa, and wheat, planting the crops on different plots each year, diversifying soil nutrients. She’s also planted rows of fruit and nut trees between the crops, to protect them from the wind, and generating additional ecosystemic benefits

Agroforestry: A primer

Conventional agriculture is very productive. But high productivity comes at a cost: soil that is depleted or eroded, watercourses that are polluted or drying up, and a food system that produces 20–40% of greenhouse gas emissions. Many people now agree that we urgently need to transform the food system, including agriculture. Agroforestry, as a nature-based approach to production and land use, will play an important role in this transformation.

This manual, published by The Center for International Forestry Research–World Agroforestry  (CIFOR-ICRAF) helps farmers and professionals build their capacity to implement agroforestry principles in the context of their local conditions.
