    It is a European project aimed at improving the performance of organic farming by launching participatory varietal breeding across Europe. For France, INRA UMR BAGAP (Véronique Chable) is collaborating with ARBRATATOUILLE to initiate a varietal selection of tomatoes adapted to agroforestry. The project's farmers are fully involved in this dynamic, which starts in 2018 and continues until 2020.


    This project carried by the GRAB from 2014 to 2016, and of which AGROOF was a partner, aimed to create a national network of farmers practicing agro-forestry market gardening and to gather feedback on agronomic and techno-economic aspects.


    This project was coordinated by AGROOF and supported by ADEME for three years (2012-2014). It aimed to assess carbon dynamics in agroforestry to understand the potential of agroforestry in mitigating climate change. It was realized in partnership with: IRD ECO & SOLS; INRA ECOSYS; INRA UMR SYSTEM; University of Rennes. The “Terres de Roumassouze” farm were part of the experimental sites.


    Led by the team of Jérôme Casas (University of Tours) from 2014 to 2016 with financial support from the Région Centre, this project aimed to understand more precisely the impact of agroforestry and more particularly the grassed strip at the tree feet on the ground beetles activity and spatial dynamic. In addition, lymph tests were performed every 3 to 4 hours to check the energy status of the beetles monitored..


    This project coordinated by AGROOF is supported by ADEME. It starts in 2018 for a period of 3 years and aims to evaluate the potential valuation of agroforestry tree branches for biosourced materials and chemistry. The general objective is to find alternatives to products of fossil origin (chemistry and biobased materials) thanks to the branches resulting from intra-plot agroforestry systems (for the south of France) and Bretagne bocage. One of the project's expectations is the evaluation of potential outlets for these agroforestry systems, thanks to the involvement of several scientific and technical partners: CIRAD BiowooEB, ARMINES / C2MA, INRA SPO, Chambre d’Agriculture 35, University of Lorraine LERMAB, Fibres Recherches Développement, CIRAD AMAP, AGROOF.
