Workshop on “Tree stability: models standardisation and integration”

This workshop aimed in: (i) presenting the actual models, methods and computing tools that are available for tree stability investigations and prediction at the tree and stand scales; (ii) discussing about standardisation and integration of these methods and tools in decision support systems; (iii) deciding how to strengthen and make permanent the animation of this tree stability research network, and how to enhance and support international (...)

3D virtual tomato fruit

3D Virtual fruit - Application for the control of fruit growth and quality

The architectural properties of a fruit, such as its size, shape, internal structure (number of carpels) and pattern of vasculature, are remarkably diverse among species and varieties and may have a significant impact on the distribution of water and carbon inside the fruit. The aim of the project was to investigate the effects of fruit architectural properties on fruit quality by means of a 3D functional-structural fruit model. To (...)

A step further towards trait-based agroecology:considering agrosystem specificities in relationships between the functional structure of plan communities and the services provided in perennial cash crops/ cover crop system.

A step further towards trait-based agroecology: considering agrosystem specificities in relationships between the functional structure of plant communities and the services provided in perennial cash crop / cover crop systems The design of cultivated communities that provide a set of targeted services requires specific tools and methods to evaluate these services and compare the performances of different cropping systems. However, such (...)

A three-country network for agri-food chain modeling applied to durum wheat

Building a network between three countries (France, Canada and Morocco) at two levels: Cooperation between research teams specialised in knowledge representation and reasoning methods, with the aim of combining their skills to design a generic approach to commodity chain modelling; Joint study of the durum wheat sector in these countries and their interactions; through, in particular, a long-term mission from August 2015 to July 2016 by (...)

Peach-Rot Ideotype Modelling (PRIMo)

A tool to conceive sustainable production systems - case of the peach brown rot couple (PRIMo)

The peach-brown rot couple is a complex system under the triple influence of the genotype (fungus and host), the environment and cultural practices. Studying this system could lead to a reduction of fungicide use and thus to ecological, economical and health benefits. With the support of Agropolis Fondation, an interdisciplinary team of scientists from INRA conducted a study to illustrate how a model-based design approach could be used as (...)
