Interview at the Continental Legume Innovation and Networking (LIN) Workshop in Hohenheim with Attila Krall from Agri Kulti, Hungary, about Case Study 17

Case study reports · 14. September 2018
TRUE Case study 22 at the Agricultural University of Athens uses legumes in crop rotations schemes in organic crops of non-legumes, aiming to increase soil fertility and ensure an adequate nitrogen supply to the crop despite the non-use of inorganic nitrogen fertilizers. This study will compare the environmental impact of organic and conventional cultivation systems and identify wider environmental effects when legumes are used in crop rotation schemes with non-legume vegetables.

Legumes are "smart" plants because they can utilize nitrogen from the atmosphere to cover their nutritional needs. Legumes do not need nitrogen fertilization as they form symbiotic relationships with rhizobia bacteria. Non-legume crops however need synthetic fertilizers to replenish the nitrogen removed from the soil. Case Study 21 at the AUA uses beans and grafting technique to obtain efficient rootstock/scion genotypes in terms of symbiotic nitrogen fixation and GHG emissions.

Across the EU 20-45 % of food is consumed outside the home. Vegetarian and vegan menus are gaining stronger footholds in the European restaurant scene and consumers want more options.This case study carried out analysis about how supply chains to the food service market are structured and how suppliers of legumes and pulses could engage in the supply chains. We find a strong focus on greening the menus to provide alternatives to meat-based dishes.
