Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique

Our research group (Cultivated diversity and participatory research) within UMR - BAGAP (Unité mixte de Recherche - Biodiversité, Agroécologie et Aménagement du Paysage) of INRA de Rennes, is only working for organic farming and on-farm research. In the framework of participatory and multi-actor (national or European) projects, we evaluate and enrich the diversity of cultivated plants within diverse organic agroecosystems with farmers and other organic actors (millers, bakers,…) in order to increase their performance, resilience and quality, re-discovering genetic resources of diverse plant species and developing adapted biodiversity management for organic or marginal/specific conditions.
