Research fields and activities
Crop protection and the environment
Developing weeding protocols, disease and pest identification and control, preparation of approval applications for plant protection products
Plant breeding to meet new needs
Breeding is very effective in the search for competitive advantage
The search for new perspectives
Prospective studies with strategic intelligence (anticipating and supporting the development of new species or new uses). Participation in competent bodies (AFNOR/AFSSA/AFSSAPS/ European Pharmacopoeia) for product normalisation
- Leading the national network of technical advisers in this sector
- Technical support to organisations
- Conducting experiments
- Genetic improvement and breeding
- Cropping itineraries: crop protection and management of dates and harvesting stages
- Harvest and post-harvest technologies
Creates better performing varieties to respond constantly to changing needs.
Works to protect crops and the environment and develops qualifiable technical itineraries, submitted for approval.
Opens up new perspectives for production using new species or new uses.
Contributes to structuring the sector and to changes in regulations and standards (AFNOR, Pharmacopeia).
These activities are carried out mainly at the request of members (some 90 legal entities) covering the vast majority of the significant actors in the sector, making ITEIPMAI an association which closely reflects the sector's economy, geography and diversity.
