MultiPlant’s goal is in a value chain perspective to develop, demonstrate and document the potential of high yielding - high biodiversity - low input perennial mixtures targeted marketable products. Based on the mixtures MultiPlant will 1) develop and optimize refining of feed protein, 2) evaluate the protein quality by feeding poultry and pigs, 3) optimize biogas digestion with intensive and extensive cropping, 4) optimize fertilizer value of digested material, 5) improve pollinator conditions in the landscape using fields with increased flowering, 6) increase soil fertility using legumes and deep rooted species, 7) quantify the economic and environmental perspectives for multifunctional mixtures, and 8) develop farm-specific advisory concepts for implementation.
