Added final product value with prototypes and operational solutions


Multifunctional farming






Added value of the final product (legume-small grains intercropping) with prototype and operational solution for intercrop. 

The farm has close cooperation with the most relevant institutions in the agricultural sector of Serbia The main stakeholders involved in working on this farm are UNSFA, 

  • Extension services – assistance with applications for various funds (IPARD, subsidies) 
  • Institutes/seed company (NS seme, Agrosava….) – seeding material, organic seed production 
  • Organic agriculture Cluster of Vojvodina (VOK) knowledge transfer, promotion 
  • Farmer association – knowledge transfer, lobbying 

The farm will try to reach new consumers and new markets and develop its own brand based on co-innovation in intercropping development. The required inputs are suitable intercropping solutions and technology development (fine-tuning). 

Scaling out potential – The selected farm is the front-runner farm which will be used for knowledge transfer and implementation of intercropping on farms within the local community and beyond.
