Presentation of the UMR Agronomie

The Agronomie research team produces knowledge and methods to create and evaluate sustainable agricultural systems. It works on different research themes: biologic regulation in agroecosystems, interactions between genotype/environment/agricultural practices, methods to create and evaluate agricultural systems, and global agronomy.

Project implications
  • Design of ideotypes for sustainable agricultural systems: development of a general methodology, and application to wheat mixtures, through participatory conception exercises, involving farmers and “Chambres d’Agriculture”
  • Development of statistical and agronomic tools to evaluate varieties and characterize resistance to different environmental stress (with a focus on low nitrogen inputs)
