Wheatamix, research project of the ANR Agrobiosphère : 2014-2018
Wheatamix studies the interest of mixing wheat varieties to reinforce the sustainability of agricultural production in the Paris Basin, in the context of global changes. This interdisciplinary project involves 10 research laboratories and 6 Chambers of Agriculture.
Wheatamix analyses the interactions between varieties, to understand how to obtain performing wheat blends, in terms of yield and quality, as well as other ecosystem services. The project aims at establishing rules for blends in a participative way, and evaluating their relevance in different production contexts.
