In the temperate zone, alley cropping is promoted as a climate change-resilient agroforestry practice for the provision of biogenic energy carriers. However, little information is available on the potential of such cropping systems as feedstock for biofuel production. In a field trial in Central Europe, the triennial performance of alley cropping systems(More)
White clover/perennial ryegrass mixtures (Trifolium repens L., Lolium perenne L.) are potential understory candidates for temperate agroforestry systems. A 2-year artificial shade experiment was conducted to determine the effects of shade on herbage production and quality and on changes in sward composition under field conditions.

European agricultural policy increasingly focuses on environmental friendly cropping systems. Intercropping of maize (Zea mays L.) and common beans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) has been suggested as an alternative cropping system with environmental benefits. The aim of this study was to assess methane yield potential of mixed silages. Based on material from two(More)
