Abstract


Several studies show that the global interest in health and human nutrition is continually growing. A continuous change includes also the food production systems. There are more and more papers that connect the value of agricultural production and food production system, papers that show a particular interes on the high value of products that are produced in low input agricultural systems. On grassland canopy, these systems have a high diversity of floristic species. At European level, this concept has been extrapolated also to the farms, being a major concern regarding the quantification of inputs, aspect pursued along this paper.
