Unlocking the benefits of legumes:
Boosting sustainability of agroecosystems

VALERECO aims to promote the adoption of legume crops and enhance understanding of their value towards transition to sustainable, productive, climate-neutral, environment-friendly and resilient farming systems. The project aims to quantify and enhance the environmental and economic value of the Ecosystem Services (ES) provided by 12 different legume crops, seeking to encourage diversification of farming practices throughout the EU and Associated Countries. This will contribute to healthier, sustainable diets and increase resilience to climate change.
