Ecological theories and Control methods for the Optimization of West african agroecosystems

The sustainability of agroecosystems, along with the ecological services they provide, is a major stake for present and future agronomy. In the context of global change, it is urgent to revisit the paradigms of agronomy, to come up with a new sustainable agriculture with high productivity and low energy and fertilizer consumption. In west African agro-sylvo-pastoral agroecosystems where there are low inputs of nutrients, fallow and (...)

Rhéologie de la matière Molle

Elastic properties of soft particles paste as a model for highly concentrated protein solutions.

Microgels are soft particles composed of a cross-linked polymer network swollen in a solvent. They are deformable and can thus be packed to effective volume fractions greater than the random close packing limit for hard spheres, often even greater than one. Moreover, their softness can be tuned by varying their cross-link density. Hence, they offer great potential to study the behavior of suspensions at high packing fraction, exploring (...)

NRT1.1-induced ammonium toxicity

Elucidation of mechanism for ammonium toxicity caused by nitrate sensor NRT1.1/NPF6.3 in Arabidopsis thaliana

The general objective of the project is to investigate mechanisms determining nitrogen use efficiency in plants, through collaboration between the group of Dr. A. Gojon in BPMP and the group of Prof. H. Sakakibara at Nagoya University. The experiments planned in Montpellier will be devoted to answer two specific questions : 1) does NRT1.1 acts in the roots or in the shoot to induce ammonium toxicity?, and 2) what is the relationship between (...)

Farmer’s knowledge in Senegalese Land Reform

Embedding farmers’ knowledge into a decision-makers’ modelling of land reform in Senegal

A participatory design of land policies has been designed then implemented in 2008 to transfer the abilities for autonomous scaling-up participatory analysis and foresight. Participatory simulating workshops based on a role playing game, help participants co-develop their own proposals for territorial management then test them (by simulating them) at different scales (local, regional, national). An autonomous scaling up and out process is (...)

Endogenous virus markers and plant genome NGS sequencing to address Musa biodiversity and enhance genetic resources for breeders

Sweet and starchy bananas are among the major food crops providing staple food and livelihoods for millions of small farmers across the tropics and subtropics in Africa, Asia, America and Oceania. However a large part of the global production relies on a limited number of edible cultivars clonally propagated, with a narrow genetic diversity as a consequence. The major gap to be addressed is to provide locally well adapted varieties to supply (...)

Enhancement of native Arbuscular Mycorrhizae Fungi (AMF) for adaptation to drought spell and sustainable yield increase in small holder farmers’ fields

Enhancement of native Arbuscular Mycorrhizae Fungi (AMF) for adaptation to drought spell and sustainable yield increase in small holder farmers’ fields

The proposed work aims to use AMF to enhance yam resilience to climate change and to improve the livelihood of rural yam farmers. This will be through the isolation, multiplication, and packing of indigenous AMF that will be readily available for their use
