With UK government support for companion or intercropping through the Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI), there will be more interest in growing intercrops, and producing an economically viable crop is essential. Innovative Farmers is running an intercropping trial and would like to gain a better understanding of why intercropping is not more common, and what the barriers are to greater use of it in farming systems.
To help them understand these barriers, they’ve put together a questionnaire so that they can arrange events, farm walks and meetings to help find ways to break down these barriers – please complete the survey below and share your ideas!
