Workshop on Diverfarming, a European project to research crops to be intercropped between olive trees

Geolit - Science and Technology Park

Geolit hosted a workshop called Diverfarming, part of a European Union project that is trying to investigate which crops can be interspersed with agronomically viable and economically profitable olive trees. During the workshop they discussed which plants might be the most suitable for interleaving between olive trees, such as a mixture of legumes for livestock, aromatic plants such as thyme, lavender, sage or rosemary, oats, alfalfa and/or vetch for cattle or game, legumes for human consumption. This would make olive groves more profitable, especially those which, in a situation of low prices, risk being abandoned because of their high production costs.
