Members involved

Coordinator: Stéphane Lemarié

Partners: GAEL, SAD-APT, Agronomie, GQE, LEM, CA-FDGEDA


  • Promoting collaborative blends design between scientists and farmers, taking account of agroecologic performances and knowledge and objectives of farmers

Field experiments

Farm network of Chambres d'Agriculture, a comparison of technical and economic performances between four-ways mixtures and monocultures associated in different departments.

A network of 30 farms will be selected by the 6 Chambers of Agriculture in the Paris Basin (Cher, Eure, Indre, Loir-et-Cher, Loiret and Seine-et-Marne). The selection of the farms aims at representing contrasted cropping systems and "terroirs".
