legume crops for sustainable agriculture
NAME OF ORGANISATION:
Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique de Tunisie (INRAT)
The use of productive and well adapted legumes and grasses in association with appropriate technical management and practices is likely to reduce production costs and provide economical solutions to farmers.
reverse soil degradation, improve forage production and feed small ruminant livestock systems and livestock productivity at farm level, as well as to maintain food security in Tunisia.
this collaboration aims to higher dry matter yields, better seasonal forage distribution, better weed control and higher forage quality
DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
INRAT is the first Institute specialized in Agricultural Research full time and the oldest in the country. Its date of creation goes back to 1913 although some work relating to the genetics of cereals started at the end of the 19th century (1893). I belong to the Laboratory of Animal Productions and Forages.
The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area will devise new R&I approaches to improve water availability and sustainable agriculture production in a region heavily distressed by climate change, urbanisation and population growth
The PRIMA programme is an Art.185 initiative supported and funded under Horizon 2020, the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
