The national experimentation network


Challenges and pedoclimatic conditions specific to each production area require experimentation to be carried out as close to the field as possible. By relying on our partners, i.e., the experimental stations, the CTIFL manages and coordinates the experimental methods and the technical facilities and equipment used within the framework of regional experimentation, with the aim of acquiring reliable references while increasing efficiency as a whole.

This coordination is implemented with regional partner or associated stations by:

  • the involvement of CTIFL engineers in the regional partner stations,
  • national working groups led by the produce sector managers and
  • national working groups led by the experts of the thematic programmes for cross-cutting issues.
