The SYSTERRE decision support tool is being modernized

28 Jan 2022

Launched in 2011, SYSTERRE is a strategic decision-making tool for farmers and their advisors to assess the sustainability of their farms.

Available for free access, it is co-developed by Arvalis, Terres Inovia, ITB and ACTA. It allows the description of agricultural practices and the calculation of a set of indicators to assess the technical, economic and environmental performance of productions and, then, to build innovative alternatives in terms of sustainability.

A more intuitive web version

As part of the SmartAgriHubs project, funded by the European Horizon 2020 program, the SYSTERRE tool, which until now has been managed on Microsoft Access, has been converted to a web format. The interface has been redesigned to offer faster, more intuitive and efficient navigation, with new functionalities for customizing tables or managing decision rules at the plot level, for example.

Three applications of SYSTERRE for Terres Inovia

The technical institute uses this decision support tool in three cases:
monitoring field experiments on Syppre platforms to compare sustainability indicators between the innovative system and the conventional system by assessing the multi-performance of cropping systems
-conducting studies on the impact of changes in practices, for example to "assess the effect of introducing a diversification crop on farms," explains Francis Flénet, head of the Agronomy, Economics and Environment Department at Terres Inovia. SYSTERRE has been used to analyze the effects of including pea and faba bean in eastern France.
SYSTERRE has been used in particular to analyze the effects of the insertion of pea and faba bean in Eastern France. -The accompaniment of farmers in the Berry network to evaluate the agroecological transition of farms, highlighting for example an increase in economic margin or the improvement of environmental balance sheets.

"SYSTERRE is particularly used in the Cap Protéines pilot territories to guide producers towards agroecology," adds Francis Flénet. Currently, this support concerns six pilot territories, which include 128 farmers and 35 technical advisors.
