LEG-Box: LegValue Decision Support System to insert legumes in cropping systems

Anne SCHNEIDER - Terres Inovia- France

A presentation given during Webinar 2 "Optimising Legume Production" of the 8 Webinar series ‘European Legumes in Transition’ 20 April 2021

Leg-BOX is a prototype to raise awareness among farmers & advisors who have little or no knowledge of these crops and to help them understand, through an economic calculator for rotation, the benefits of planting a new pulse crop in a given context, as well as the main existing outlets and markets for these crops. For producers who use grain legumes, the tool will provide them with  recommendations for choosing the crop according to their location and how to design their system in order to benefit from the services provided by the presence of these legumes: better soil fertility, lower inputs (nitrogen or pesticide products), lower greenhouse gas emissions, or better harvest quality of the cereals in the rotation, etc.
