What agriculture for tomorrow?

The relationship between agriculture and biodiversity is at the heart of the Agripop team’s research. Population regulation, community assembly, sustainable management of natural resources, identification of innovative cropping systems that reconcile, in cereal agro-ecosystems, agricultural production, socio-economic needs and preservation of biodiversity in all its facets (heritage, ordinary and functional), or finally citizen-nature links, are thus our main research themes. Considerable societal challenges currently surround agricultural areas: reducing the negative consequences and externalities of this activity on the environment (biodiversity, water, public health), responding to the challenge of global change, while continuing to produce in sufficient quantity and quality to meet growing human food demand. We are focusing our research on an alternative to the prevailing productivist model, under the concept of agro-ecology.
