Do Soils Have Memories?

Do Soils Have Memories?

Eighty Key Questions to Understand Soils


J. Balesdent, E. Dambrine, J. Fardeau

Edition 2015

Soils are at the heart of major global issues. Nourish the planet implies keeping them fertile without exhausting them. The soils can also contribute to reducing CO2emissions by forming "carbon sinks". In addition, they are currently threatened by several major risks, mainly erosion, salinisation, loss of organic matter and pollution. Far from the current tendency to see everything in black and white, the authors of this book wished to extend elements of knowledge on soil physics, biology and ecology.

Crop Diversification

Crop Diversification

Removing the Agronomic and Economic Obstacles


A. Messéan, J. Meynard

Edition 2014

In a context where the resources continue to simplify and where the rotations are increasingly short, crop diversification seems essential to reduce the use of agricultural inputs, especially pesticides. This work analyses the main obstacles to crop diversification at the level of the agricultural industries and farms. It suggests ways of shaking up highly-specialised productive schemes and creating new ones.
