Contribution to a research project as part of a consortium involving a research laboratory and a company

As part of a research program led by ADEME, Agrisud is involved in a project which aims to identify the obstacles and levers to the energy and ecological transition of farmers.

Indeed, the results of research conducted by INRA show that intermediate crops can play a positive role in the Carbon and GHG balance, which is why practices must evolve.

The Agrisud team is made up of Aida and the Cesbio laboratory. They are jointly experimenting with two groups of farmers in the Gers in order to build with them practice change models based on their specific situations on their territory.
