Title of the project

AGRIFAUNE – Ecological and agronomic impact study of the grinding periods of the outer edge of cereal plain plots


The Hunters Federation of Loiret is carrying out a study as part of the national AGRIFAUNE programme.

Several actions are being implemented such as practice tests (limitation of herbicides at the roadside, differentiated grinding of the outer edges, etc.) and monitoring activities (flora, pollinators, arthropods, weeds).

In 2014, a symposium to report on the 4 years of experimentation took place at the Orléans Museum.
