Agricultural activity, whether organic or conventional, always refers to a biological process carried out by a plant, animal or microbial organism.
The main difference between organic and conventional agriculture is the use of synthetic chemicals in conventional agriculture.
Organic agriculture exploits the natural fertility of the soil by excluding the use of synthetic products. It is based on the respect of the agrosystem and the environment with the help of phytopharmaceutical products of organic and natural origin, but which do not contain synthetic substances, and form a limited choice.
But we must keep in mind that organic agriculture requires the use of nearly 40% more land, and therefore 40% more resources, to meet the current needs of a growing population.
The challenge of the ecological transition in agriculture does not lie in switching all conventional crops to organic, nor does it lie in switching farmers to digital technology or new technologies that are highly dependent on natural resources.
We think of “sustainable agriculture”, that is to say, agriculture with low environmental impact that would preserve natural resources, the soil and the organic substance in it.
We are working to change the methods and increase the performance of the current agricultural model, to improve the yields of organic crops, and to naturally improve the efficiency of inputs, whether synthetic or not, to reduce their use in conventional agriculture.
We are moving forward to propose sustainable, efficient and profitable alternatives for farmers in the short term. Without changing the equipment, nor investing massively in new technologies, which would only represent an additional expense difficult to bear by many farmers, and additional environmental impacts.
We believe that the next green revolution will be that of sustainable agriculture, based on the current agricultural model, and accompanied by global reflections on the environment. We believe that it will be carried by farmers and the actors of the agricultural world, and not by digital technology, nor by machinery, which must remain economical and relevant.
