During the collective intelligence competition called Idéathon - Nourrir la créativité (Feeding Creativity) at the end of March, 32 competitors were divided equally between the two branches in Lille and Dijon. They gave free rein to their individual and collective creativity to design and propose innovative ideas around plant proteins in human nutrition.
The study carried out by Ceresco, Circoé and Terre Inovia, with the support of the Ministry of Agriculture and Food, takes stock of the legume sector and considers the obstacles and logistical levers to its development.
For more than thirty years, Terres Inovia and Terres Univia have been conducting seed quality observatories: rapeseed, sunflower, pea and faba bean since the 1990s, soybean since 2014 and more recently lentil and chickpea, through the Cap Protéines programme.
Terres Inovia has just moved its experimentation station, previously based in Grignon (Yvelines), to Guichainville, in the Eure region. A strategic position that concentrates the institute's partners and the rapeseed plots where the trials are carried out.
Terres Inovia and INRAE are pooling their know-how in an associated partnership laboratory dedicated to the research and development of efficient, innovative and low-input cropping systems.
Within the framework of Cap Protéines, the activity of Terres Inovia's seed processing and valorisation department aims to act on the technical levers that condition the concentration of proteins, their digestibility and their availability in the local sectors.
The Russian-Ukrainian war between the world's two largest producers of sunflower seeds, oil and meal is impacting agricultural markets.
At the PlantAlliance conference on March 9, David Gouache, deputy director of the institute, presented Terres Inovia's work to enable plants to cope with environmental variations.
The European Food Safety Authority has issued its opinion on the biobased solvent EcoXtract® composed of 2-Methyloxolane, stating that it can be safely used for the extraction of edible vegetable oils
The players in the sector, including Terres Inovia, are invited to think about alternatives to Phosmet, which will soon be withdrawn from the market. This action plan, supported by a call for projects financed by CASDAR and the sector, is leading to a call for expressions of interest to collect research and development proposals. They are expected by April 11.
The war in Ukraine, the world leader in sunflower production, is of direct concern to the whole sunflower research and innovation community, and more widely research in agronomy and oilseed crops.
Terres Inovia has developed and put online on its website two new decision support tools to estimate the sowing density and the harvest date of sunflower.
On the occasion of the International Agricultural Show, Terres Inovia and the Institut de l'Élevage presented the first results of the Cap Protéines program
Whether you are a technician, a sunflower grower or not yet, the replay of this webinar will give you access to all the information you need to prepare your 2022 sunflower campaign.
Cancelled in 2021 because of the pandemic, the 2022 edition of the International Agricultural Show will take place from February 26 to March 6 at the Parc des Expositions in Paris Porte de Versailles. The technical institute will be present on the stand of Terres OléoPro and on the one of Acta, without forgetting the numerous interventions of our experts during the show.
