Studies and operational research
Researchers, assistant engineers and technicians contribute to innovation and expertise in oil and protein crops by performing studies aiming to develop operational reference tools for producers, their[JS2] agricultural advisers and the companies of the sector.
These studies essentially cover agricultural production (cropping systems and practices, crop protection, plant breeding) and the initial transformation of products (particularly the crushing of oilseeds). The subjects studied are chosen according to feedback from development workers concerning needs in the field.
This work involves scientific and technical watch activities and the acquisition and processing of data (from experiments, surveys, modeling etc.). Much of this work is performed in partnership with public researchers, other technical institutes, agroindustry (manufacture of inputs or product transformation), agricultural development workers, storage organizations and producers.
The results of the studies performed by the institute are communicated via various channels: scientific articles, the specialist agricultural press, decision support tools, the training of technicians and farmers, meetings and visits in the field, websites, social media.
