TRUE project investigates using legume living mulches to support sustainable soil solutions
Legume-supported polyculture can help address some of the key challenges being faced by the sector, and can contribute towards the improvement of soil health, underpinning both productivity and environmental gains.
Sustainable soil solutions was at the heart of the recent TRUE (“TRansition paths to sUstainable legume-based systems in Europe”) project, funded by the EU Horizon 2020 programme. This brought together a consortium of 24 international partners, including CHAP partner Stockbridge Technology Centre (STC). Dr Jennifer Banfield-Zanin, Senior Project Manager, at Stockbridge explains the challenge, methodology and impact of the project.
