On 10 May, the final of the Cap Protéines Challenge was held. The aim of this student competition was to take up the current challenges surrounding plant proteins by proposing ideas and concepts to improve the national production of protein-rich crops and to democratise their use in human food.
In response to a local problem, Terres Inovia has set up specific trials in the north of Charente-Maritime to improve control strategies against rapeseed diseases, particularly mycosphaerella. These field trials are supported financially by the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region.
Today, rapeseed is subject to two major constraints. The summer droughts have a strong impact on the success of the sowing and the surfaces in place have been subjected for several years to a very strong pressure of autumn beetles sometimes resistant to pyrethroid insecticides.
Terres Inovia and its partners have organised, as they do every year, regional meetings on organic farming. Find the replays and documents presented during the 2 Proléobio Centre & West sessions on 26 April 2022
The webinar "What opportunities for a better match between supply and demand of plant proteins for animal feed? This is an opportunity to (re)watch the presentation by Patrick Carré, an expert in seed processing at Terres Inovia, on the reduction of antitrypsin factors in soybeans through cooking processes.
The R2D2 project, which stands for Restoring Natural Regulation and Increasing Robustness of Cropping Systems in the Burgundy Plateaux for a Sustainable Reduction in Dependence on Insecticides, began in 2018. Its aim is to support Burgundy farmers in the implementation of agro-ecological levers that will enable them to regain high and stable levels of production and profitability, in order to overcome the technical impasses they are facing.
As part of the Cap Protéines programme, a project is evaluating the possibility of introducing organic soya, processing it and using it in Réunion. This feasibility study is being conducted by Armeflhor with the technical support of experts from Terres Inovia and Terres Univia.
Within the framework of Cap Protéines, Terres Inovia, in partnership with the regional chambers of agriculture, is deploying in six pilot territories (Brittany, Normandy, New Aquitaine, Occitania, Grand Est, Burgundy Franche-Comté) a support approach to the agro-ecological transition, called Cap Agronomie.
As part of the Cap Protéines programme, Terres Inovia and its partners are organising the Printemps de l'autonomie protéique in collaboration with Idele. The event will take place in the field, in classrooms and via regular webinars!
The regional PEI Partage project, focused on reducing nitrogen losses on farms, is organizing a series of on-farm technical days.
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.
