Sustainable and Resilient Field Crop Systems

Systèmes de grande culture durables et résilients

Through innovative combinations of reduced tillage, diversified crop rotation and maximum soil cover (conservation agriculture), this project aims to develop sustainable and resilient field-crop systems that allow us to use resources efficiently, reduce the use of plant-protection products to the bare minimum, and produce profitably. In close partnership with several Agroscope teams, two types of trials will be conducted:

(a) Trials at the research station to study the long-term effects of soil tillage and crop rotation, and to evaluate the performances of different cover-crop mixtures and species. 

(b) On-farm trials conducted by farmers to optimise new production techniques under practical conditions. This project will offer solutions to both conventional and organic farmers.
