"Three assumptions were made at the start of this work : - The use of living mulches on the rows of orchards or vineyards can be a sustainable alternative to mechanical weeding, with no significant impact on the crop system performance. This can be achieved either by choosing species that are not very competitive, or by using crops that can bring an additional income, while being compatible with the main crop. - The use of leguminous crops on the rows and/or the inter-rows can be sufficient to provide the nitrogen needs of the trees or vines and improve the overall fertility of the soil. - The use of cover crops on the orchard rows can modify the root architecture of the trees, improving the nutrient uptake capacities and the resilience of the crop system to biotic and abiotic stresses."
