WP5: Effect of variety mixtures and intercropping on performance of minor cereals

WP5 will focus on identifying the effects of variety mixtures and legume intercrops on crop performance (yield, disease resistance and quality) using various fertiliser input levels and foliar disease treatments. Field experiments will be carried out in three climatic zones using contrasting genotypes of minor cereal species selected in WPs 1 and 2 to address genotype x environment (both climatic and agronomic) interactions.
