HortSys Agroecological Functioning and Performances of Horticultural Cropping Systems
Inventing an ecologically intensive type of horticulture so as to feed people better: this is a wide-ranging mandate for the unit, whose main aim is to generate and capitalize on knowledge so as to assess and design sustainable horticultural cropping systems.
Cirad 28 23 Eric Malézieux
AIDA Agro-ecology and Sustainable Intensification of Annual Crops
The Annual Cropping Systems (SCA) and Conservation Agriculture and Engineering (SIA) Research Units were merged to form this new unit as of 1 January 2014.
Cirad 56 15 Eric Scopel
IATE Agropolymer Engineering and Emerging Technologies
Particularly in tropical countries, plant biomass plays host to numerous biocatalytic activities, which can be optimized using lipid biotechnologies and rational functionalization of these resources.
Cirad, Inra, Montpellier SupAgro, UM 46 31 Hugo de Vries
GECO Banana, Plantain 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.

BGPI Biology and genetics of plant-pathogen interactions
In-depth knowledge of interactions between plants and their pathogens constitutes the foundation for rational control of invasion by and acclimatization of pathogens introduced from elsewhere. Modelling on a regional scale should make it possible to propose control strategies based on cropping practices and land use planning
Cirad, Inra, Montpellier SupAgro 45 12 Claire Neema
BioWooEB Biomass, Wood, Energy, Bioproducts
The unit’s aim is to respond to energy supply difficulties in developing countries by improving procedures tailored to individual situations and to local biomass availability, and by analysing the conditions for their use in tropical environments. Its research covers thermochemical biomass processing technologies for fuel production, decentralized electricity generation and biofuel production, keeping a watchful eye on the possible impact of those techniques on the natural environment.
Cirad 30 18 Rémy Marchal
AMAP Botany and Computational Plant Architecture
Associating several disciplines—botany, ecology, applied mathematics and informatics—is a major technical and scientific challenge for modern agronomy and forestry. It enables the development of new applications and tools for identifying plants, managing crops, forests and the environment, and developing rural areas.
Cirad, CNRS, Inra, IRD,UM 60 32 Thierry Fourcaud
CBGP Center for Biology and Management of Populations
To improve control strategies against pests and identify means of conserving threatened natural populations, it is vital to modify the constraints to which they are subject, and thus to analyse the constraints on each set of organisms, and how those organisms adapt to changes in the constraints.

InterTryp Host-Vector-Parasite Interactions in Infections by Trypanosomatidae
Trypanosomiases are still a major concern in sub-Saharan Africa. Human trypanosomiases are enjoying a resurgence, and 60 million people are at risk. Animal trypanosomiases, the main type of vector-borne diseases affecting animals, are still an obstacle to the development of animal production in the region. Insect and plant trypanosomiases also have a major impact on crops.
