The research on crops and cropping systems is a key area of excellence of the Agropolis International scientific community.
Agropolis agronomists are striving to come up with sustainable solutions tailored to a range of different biophysical and socioeconomic situations:

  • temperate, Mediterranean and tropical agriculture,
  • large mechanized farms and smallholdings,
  • local food production and cash and export crops,
  • etc

The complementary expertise of these different research teams enables them to deal with the diverse range of complex issues and agricultural situations.

UPR GECO : Ecological Functioning and Sustainable Management of Banana and Pineapple Cropping Systems
Although export fruit crops are a major source of jobs and currency, they are now often barely viable, in agronomic, economic or social terms. These fruit monocultures often cause pollution and impoverish the environment. The markets are increasingly competitive and consumers increasingly demanding.
