Observation and experimental network

ARVALIS – Institut du végétal is engaged in many important multi-partner observation and experimental networks.



SYPPRE®: A long-term project to “build together tomorrow’s cropping systems”

Resulting from a partnership between ARVALIS – Institut du végétal, the Institut technique de la betterave (sugar beet Institute) and Terres Inovia (oil and protein crops institute), the SYPPRE project covers five foresight platforms spread all over France, the co-designing of cropping systems in collaboration with farmers networks and local actors, and an observatory of practices.

Two experimental farms implemented by ARVALIS, in Boigneville (Paris region) and Saint Hilaire en Woëvre (Northeastern France), belong to the national Digifermes® network and are piloted by the ACTA and the Instituts Techniques Agricoles. These two sites are especially dedicated to assessing and co-designing digital tools and services to promote smart, efficient and sustainable farming, in partnership with numerous actors: startups, development agencies, digital enterprises, research institutes…

The epidemiological surveillance network

ARVALIS is engaged in an epidemiological surveillance network that contributes to the Bulletins de Santé du Végétal (BSV). It acts on several levels: observating, animating sectors at a regional level, harmonizing observation protocols, studying the unintentional effects (resistance).

Resistance monitoring network

ARVALIS is involved in several resistance monitoring networks, from plant pests to plant protection products. It coordinates a multi-stakeholder network called “Wheat performance”, which aims at monitoring the evolution of Septoria tritici resistance to strobilurins, triazole and carboxamide (SDHI).

The national network "Fermothèque grandes cultures"

This network comprises 30 model farms spread across major cereal production areas in France, which are perfectly characterized and serve as a basis for economic studies, for example to assess the micro-economic impact of technical or regulatory developments.

ARVALIS – Institut du végétal also conducts long-term trials to study the long-term effects of rotations and agricultural practices (suppressing ploughing, reducing pesticides, introducing mechanical weeding…), of cropping or livestock-farming systems (conventional, organic, integrated…), and to measure the effects of all the agronomic parameters, by including for example carbon storage and biodiversity :

  • Boigneville (Paris region) : long-term trials and suppression of ploughing,
  • La Jaillière (Western France) : evolution of organic matter,
  • Baziège (Southwestern France) : managing weeding in rotations,
  • Montgaillard (Southwestern France) : behavior of crops dedicated to the production of biomass.
