In 2021, the technical institute for vegetable oils and proteins and the hemp sector has once again been true to its mission: to innovate. "Our experiments, projects and studies, carried out with numerous applied research players, aim to respond to the issues of protein sovereignty, the Ukrainian crisis, the challenge of climate change and regulatory changes" to find "alternatives to help producers improve the competitiveness of their crops", says Gilles Robillard, the President of Terres Inovia, in the preamble to the 2021 activity report.

The year 2021 saw in particular the implementation of the Cap Protéines programme, the research, development, innovation and transfer mechanism of the Protein Plan. Coordinated by Terres Inovia and the Institut de l'élevage (Idele), it started in January 2021 and will end in 2022. The projects it supports aim to cover the deficit in plant proteins to meet human food demand, to reduce dependence on plant protein imports for animal feed and to strengthen the protein autonomy of livestock farms.

Crop competitiveness, organic farming, cropping systems, market development, ecosystem services and strategic investments are some of the themes of the many projects and works that took shape in 2021 to help producers with new operational solutions.

Agronomic innovations were the spearhead of Terres Inovia's work in 2021, including new tools for controlling rapeseed pests, recommendations for controlling downy mildew in sunflower adapted to the context, recommended lists for pea and winter bean to choose adapted varieties, and support for territorial projects for low-carbon agriculture.

Terres Inovia's 2021 activity report is available on the Terres Inovia website for download.
