Main goals of the project

To further develop the multi-species mixture system for herbal leys and permanent grassland.


To explore the options of climate change adaptation and mitigation, biodiversity enhancement, and socio-economic resilience at farm level. The Innovation Hub has teamed up with a PhD project investigating different types of pastures at different altitudes.

As part of the focus this includes:

  • mixture development for leys
  • co-creation of mixtures
  • strengthen on-farm tests
  • strengthen AGFF-quality label
  • mixtures for higher altitude
  • mixtures for drought (adaptation to climate change)
  • increase diversity within mixtures (e.g. add forbs)
  • decision together with stakeholders
