The experimental system at Lusignan (Poitou-Charentes) is characterized by the insertion of temporary grassland sequences into a cereal crop rotation. The environmental and agronomic roles of temporary grassland in cereal rotations are studied by optimizing their environmental impacts and preserving biodiversity.
The site provides the following services to scientists:
- An in situ ecosystem experimentation service;
- Instrumentation for the long-term monitoring of these ecosystems and the in situ measurement of environmental parameters;
- Devices and tools for collecting samples and data on the ecosystems studied.
