Feet in the fields: farmers reveal their assets and techniques on diversification crops

After soybean, the web series Les pieds dans les champs is now focusing on diversification crops. Since 15 November, five new farmer testimonies have been broadcast on Terres Inovia's YouTube channel on the following topics: lupin, an excellent head of rotation; organic lentils, a very good outlet for human food; flax, a crop with few pests and predators; chickpeas, a good yield, especially in organic farming; hemp, an easy crop with promising outlets.

Launched in 2021, this web series offers an immersion in the plots of a farmer who explains, in the course of a discussion, how he grows his crop, the difficulties he faces and the agronomic levers and practices he uses. This interview is completed by a technical analysis from a Terres Inovia expert.
