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.
