Welcome to the website of the international Association for ecologically intensive agriculture! You are a farmer, a student, a teacher , a researcher, a technician, a member of an association , a business employee and you have a passion for the challenges of tomorrow's agriculture. A constantly growing population must be fed, while repairing and protecting natural ecosystems that are essential to our survival on earth but that are severely damaged. In short, to produce bigger quantities in a more ecological way using less water, less energy , fewer chemicals....and less arable land.
Let's forget the idea of a single agricultural model that should be applied worldwide. On the contrary let's make it possible for the different styles of agriculture throughout the world to develop their own potential according to the land for which they were developed and the characteristics of its society.
Interface, portal and network of networks, this is your site. Created in the spirit of contribution and participation, we remain faithful to our fundamental wish to de-compartmentalize debates that all too often become sectored and specialised. Our aim is to bring the technical sphere into the socio economical debate.
Each heading will enable you to gather and exchange information and enable you to take part in the various debates that the new but fruitful union between the terms “ intensive” and “ ecological” is bound to create.
Michel GRIFFON Président.
