Efficient and multi-functional forage production on sown grasslands

- Strategies for efficient and multi-functional sown grasslands (all types of sown grasslands)

- Advantages/disadvantages of mixtures:

  - production efficiency & profitableness,

  - utilisation of resources & environmental footprint,

  - multifunctionality / multiple services and benefits (incl. yield, forage quality, weed suppression, stability, residual effects on following crops).

- Breeding for the use in mixtures.

- Breeding for individual traits or for multi-functionality?

- What trait variability within species and among species?

- Genetic resources: which species (incl. new species), which variability within species?
