Use of functional agro-biodiversity to improve ecosystem services in vineyards

Title OriginalBlühende Rebberge für Mensch und Natur – Förderung von artenreichen Weinbergen

The object is to test the use of tailored plant mixtures to enhance specific ecosystem services such as plant nutrition, plant health and wine quality in different vineyards across Switzerland. We investi-gate the effect of two plant mixtures in 8-10 vineyards during four years. The project (2018-21) is a joint project with Agroscope (Reckenholz and Changins) and will be carried out in both the east-ern and western part of Switzerland.
