  • Project title: Improvement of field forage crops agronomy and grassland management (TR31016)
  • Type/financed by: Ministry of Science and Technological Development of Republic of Serbia
  • Objectiv: The aim of the research is to intensify the use of annual forage crops in crop production based on the principles of the sustainable agriculture and the possibility of growing annual forages in intercropping. The aim also includes the use of cover crops in the establishment of perennial legumes, as well as the improvement of productivity and quality of permanent grasslands by applying different management practice.
  • Lead partner: PFNS (Prof. Dr Branko Ćupina project coordinator)

  • Project title: Cover crops for enhanced agricultural sustainability in the Vojvodina province (114-451-2180/2016)
  • Type/financed by: Provincial Secretariat for Higher Education and Scientific Research
  • Objective: The aim of the research is to determine the impact of forage cover crops grown in crop rotation on the improvement of soil properties (increase of soil nitrogen content for the main crop, increase the organic matter content etc.) and sustainability of agricultural production in general.
  • Lead partner: PFNS (Prof. Dr Branko Ćupina project coordinator)

  • Project title: Supporting the Austrian Research Community in using recent Climate Change Projections for Climate Impact Studies
