Pertinence des mini-capteurs imprimés connectés PANIK (pH, Ammonium, Nitrate, K=Potassium) pour le suivi continu in-situ de la qualité chimique des eaux du sol dans les agroécosystèmes

The SOIL PANIK project has the dual objective of : to confirm the functionality of a new generation of web-connected biogeochemical mini-sensors (PANIK) for continuous in-situ monitoring of the quality of soil solutions; to federate a scientific user community within the Labex Agro by using the opportunity of experimental fields belonging to the UMRs that make up the Agropolis Foundation. The first expected results include (1) In-situ (...)

PHENOtypage des plantes par la Modélisation de leur Environnement et de leur Architecture

1. NEMA hosted in OpenAlea platform NEMA simulates the absorption and distribution within wheat plants after flowering of both dry matter and N, using soil N concentration and the daily time courses of temperature and of PAR above the canopy as driving variables. NEMA was implemented in C++. Thus, the first step was to adapt NEMA for OpenAlea. NEMA libraries were interfaced with the Python language without rewriting all the code. it is now (...)

Workshop Franco-Taiwanais

Plant Biology and Plant Breeding

Organisation of a French-Taiwanese workshop, in Font Romeu, from october 22 to 25 2013. Thirty persons participated to the workshop which included 20 invited communications, 8 from Taiwan and 12 from France.The main goal was to identify existing collaborations and eventually initiate new ones. The following fields were covered: fruit quality and development in tomato, role of phloem in systemic signals transport, response to thermic and (...)

Development of a biomechanical toolbox – Acronym : PlantBioM.lib

PlantBioM - Development of a toolbox for modeling and simulating the feedbacks between plant growth and biomechanics

The PlantBioM project aimed to develop a toolbox to simulate the mechanical behavior of a growing plant on the basis of the beam theory. This toolbox, which comes in the form of a software library, is designed to be implemented in simulation platforms for plant growth, but also able to operate independently (stand alone version). The project was divided into 4 main steps: 1 - definition of the structure of the library: it was mainly to (...)

One of the major difficulty encountered in plant disease epidemiology is the lack of occurrence data. Large-scale and sustainable monitoring efforts are penalized by the lack of experts and the difficulty of diagnosing plant diseases for non-experts. In this context, crowdsourcing plant observation tools (such as Pl@ntNet) could serve as a brave new monitoring methodology. Even if non-healthy plants remain a relatively rare event in such (...)

PlantScan3D: Reconstruction of 3D model of plants from 3D Laser scanner data

The Plantscan3D project was interested in the reconstruction of plant architecture from laser scanner data. Indeed, the automatic acquisition of plant phenotypes, and in particular of architecture traits, constitutes a major bottleneck of the construction of quantitative models of plant development. The research group of this project join plant scientists, modellers and computer scientists in order to setup a complete methodology of (...)

Polymers for a Green and sustainable chemistry" (PlantLipPol-Green)

Plateforme scientifique structurante sur la caractérisation des lipides d’origine végétale et des polymères hydrophobes non traités et biotransformés pour une chimie verte et durable (PlantLipPol-Green)

The importance of soil ecological processes and functions for plant growth and other ecosystem services makes soil an essential component of sustainable agroecological systems. Soil (ecological) Function Restoration, i.e. the intensification of these ecological processes, during agroecological transition, is the core of our project. The overall objective of the SECuRE project is to provide Soil Function Restoration (SFR) practices based on (...)

Platform for vine water status spatial monitoring at the regional scale

Monitoring vine water status at the field, vineyard or regional scale is essential as a decision-making tool for growers and winemakers since this parameter impacts wine quality. For several years, the ITAP team has developed an empirical model to extrapolate, spatialise and map the water status of the vine, which is fed by a collaborative approach. The objective of the present project is now to develop a participatory internet platform (...)

Political changes faced with climate change : institutionalization of policy innovations

This interdisciplinary seminar would bring together the speakers of the plenary conference (if possible), but beyond that, foreign and French researchers, from the whole of Agropolis Montpellier, on the issue of the climate change seen through political variables, in particular policy innovation capacity , and its link with participatory democracy processes. It’s an opportunity to bring the Agropolis communities to exchange with political (...)
