The Grignon site, also known as QualiAgro, is an experimental long-term field system set up in 1998. The objectives are to characterize the agronomic value of urban compost and its impact on the environment. Since 2014, the site has been operated without chemical inputs or pesticides, with changes in crop succession.
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.
