Crop yields have stagnated for more than 20 years, despite the practices of intensive farming. And for good reason: certain practices used have depleted the biological fertility of the soil. This impoverishment generally results in a virtual absence of earthworms, problems of leaching, soil pounding or by the deficiencies of plants in micro-elements.
A challenge for farmers
FCA Fertilisants' expertise covers the fundamental principles of conservation agriculture:
Because conservation agriculture has a specific tillage system, FCA Fertilisants provides its knowledge and technical expertise to help farmers seeking change. The advice offered covers various elements: the transition stages required to practice conservation farming, the types of microorganisms to develop depending on the soil and crops, the adjustment of spreaders, or even cutlery techniques.
TRAINING | Biological soil fertility: discovering an annual cycle
We offer a new training course on the subject of soil fertility management. It is aimed at farmers concerned with generating qualitative and quantitative agricultural yields, as well as preserving their soil and the environment.
Adopting responsible agricultural practices and techniques has an impact on the nutritional security of consumers and on climate change.
The training sub-themes are as follows: plant cover, the role of micro-organisms, sowing practices, crop rotation, restitution of residues, the circular economy, the 4 per 1000 initiative, eco-fertilization, water quality and bioremediation.
