Soils’ Day in Pays de la Loire Region
December 14, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm CET
Come and discuss the implementation of Soil Conservation Agriculture in the face of today’s challenges!
Faced with current and future challenges, agriculture must adapt by implementing more resilient practices. Soil Conservation Agriculture (SCA), with its focus on soil preservation, offers a number of levers that can be used by everyone in the Pays de la Loire region.
More and more farmers in the Loire region are opting for soil conservation agriculture. Currently, the Chamber of Agriculture of Pays de la Loire, supports and facilitates 25 groups of farmers towards this soil health practice in agriculture. Through their testimonies, we will offer a unique opportunity to discover Soil Conservation Agriculture and its implementation in Pays de la Loire region.
