PROGRAILIVE : Context AND Objectives

The target of the project PROGRAILIVE is to secure and increase the production of leguminous grains for the breeding in the west of France (Brittany and Pays de la Loire).  

We have chosen for this project to experiment with three grains : Pea, Lupine and Faba Bean to increase the protein self-sufficiency for farmers.

This project was based on the farmers requests and is based on experimenting on farmsteds using mixed crops (cereal and leguminous).

SUMMARY

To secure and increase the production of Peas, Lupine and Faba bean the partners of the PROGRAILIVE projet have decided  :

  • to select the best practises to increase the production of leguminous ;
  • To overcome the problems in leguminous production by testing with farmers, on experimental farms and agriculture schools the best solutions to produce leguminous grains ;
  • To diagnostic and understand the problems and to be able to propose a solution to the deseases specifics to this cultures ;
  • To optimise Lupine production by weed control using mixed crops  ;
  • Study the population of pests and auxiliary insects on Pea, Lupine and Faba Bean.
