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?
