These meetings were respectively organized by the agricultural farm advisors from Cher, Indre, Eure (in june) and other French departments soon.
After a brief introduction on the context of varietal mixture use, the talk was focused on:
- ideotyping and association rules designed for locally adapted mixtures
- results of two-years field experiments : yield, quality and risk of practicing varietal mixture
- first developments of a multicriteria evaluation tool, available for foliar disease at the moment
- interviews of the wheat supply chain actors to identify levers to the varietal mixture use
Discussions with the participants allowed the “non-praticians” to know better varietal mixtures, or to develop association rules already used by farmers. Discussions allowed also improving the multicriteria evaluation tool to better respond to users’ objectives.
