Project Title

Cultivation of soybeans without land competition through mixed cultivation in wheat and fodder maize

Project description

According to current market studies, the potential area required in Hesse and neighbouring regions for the production of soybeans for feed and food purposes exceeds the current area under cultivation for soybeans. Most of the soy is imported from other countries. One argument against an expansion of regional soy cultivation is the high cultivation risk. Furthermore, a noticeable increase in the area under soybean cultivation would mean a corresponding reduction in the cultivation volume of other crops, which would ultimately lead to negative effects in other areas of production. The aim of the project is therefore to develop a cultivation system that increases the cultivation safety for soybeans and does not require any additional space while at the same time increasing biodiversity. It is expected that a sowing of soy in winter wheat ("on top"), which is cultivated in the cultivation method "wide row", has no negative effect on the wheat yield. Mixed cultivation of soybeans and maize for fodder production as whole plant silage also results in an increase in the protein content of the crop compared to pure maize cultivation.
