Breeding of Forage Grasses and Clover Species for Sustainable Forage Production, Especially in Organic Farming

Agroscope breeds high-quality, disease-resistant perennial forage grasses and clover species. In addition, it develops varieties that are also adapted to future (soil, climate and management) conditions. The aim is to help ensure that milk and beef are produced from meadow forage in a ruminant-friendly manner.
