Evolution du rendement moyen annuel du blé France entière de 1815 à 2018 | Académie d'Agriculture de France

Académie d'Agriculture de france, novembre 2018

L'opinion répandue : « L’abandon des moyens mis au service de la production après 1950 tels que variétés modernes, produits de synthèse, etc... n’aurait que peu de conséquences sur la productivité du blé tendre. »

L'Académie d'Agriculture de France nous donne son analyse à ce sujet et finit par " s’interroger sur l’impact que pourrait avoir sur la productivité un abandon des variétés de blé modernes et des produits de synthèse, ce qui pourrait conduire rapidement à rendre notre pays dépendant des importations, situation qui prévalait avant 1950."

FAO - News Article: Healthy soils are essential to achieve Zero Hunger, peace and prosperity

FAO - News Article: Healthy soils are essential to achieve Zero Hunger, peace and prosperity | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

by FAO, 13/08/2018

Improving the health of the world's soils is essential to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, including Zero Hunger and combating climate change and its impacts, FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva, today told participants of the World Congress of Soil Science.

In a video message to the event, which is being attended by more than 2,000 scientists from around the world, Graziano da Silva noted that approximately one third of the Earth's soil is degraded.

"Soil degradation affects food production, causing hunger and malnutrition, amplifying food-price volatility, forcing land abandonment and involuntary migration-leading millions into poverty," he said.

The FAO The Status of the World's Soil Resources report has identified 10 major threats to soil functions including soil erosion, soil nutrient imbalance, soil carbon and biodiversity losses, soil acidification, contamination, soil salinization, and soil compaction.

Graziano da Silva stressed the importance of sustainable soil management as an "essential part of the Zero Hunger equation" in a world where more than 815 million people are suffering from hunger and malnutrition.
