Table ronde agronomie SIMA 2019

Designing tomorrow’s cropping systems today

Round table offered by AXEMA and SIMA, organised with INRA

Crop production is faced with the aims of increasing production performance and reducing environmental impact. These are major challenges for the cropping systems of tomorrow. This round table will suggest changing how we look at this issue, based on two original approaches: the first is to explore how we can increase the Land Equivalent Ratio (LER) beyond 1; and the second involves the closing of nutrient cycles, especially that of nitrogen.
