Parallel symposia on scientific advances and challenges of interdisciplinary research around Agronomy

  • "Combining genetics and management to design crops for new challenges: climate change, low input, green chemistry, improved quality" (S2.1)

    At the crossroads of plant physiology, genetics and agronomy this symposium will will address the design of crops for new challenges, in particular adaptation to climate change, low inputs, biofuels, green chemistry.

    Chairs: François Tardieu (INRA, Montpellier, France) and Graeme Hammer (APSRU, Australia)

    Oral presentations >>

  • Ecological intensification of cropping systems (S2.2)

    The impact of current intensive agricultural practices on biodiversity and ecosystems induces a need of exploring an “ecological intensification” of cropping systems, whether in European, Mediterranean or tropical environments.

    Chairs: Eric Malézieux (CIRAD, UR Hortsys, Montpellier), Marie-Laure Navas (Montpellier SupAgro & UMR Cefe, Montpellier, France) and Jean-Luc Chotte (IRD & UMR Eco&Sols, Montpellier, France)

    Oral presentations >>

  • Assessment and design of agro-ecological technologies and policies for sustainable development in agricultural regions (S2.3)

    Agronomists are not very active in development of national and international policies on environmental protection, climate change, and food security. Such a state of affairs is unacceptable given the central role agricultural systems play with regard to each of these issues.

    Chairs: Robert Lifran (INRA Montpellier, France), Martin van Ittersum (Wageningen University, The Netherlands) and Jacques-Eric Bergez (INRA Toulouse, France)
