DeciFlorSys : un outil pour accompagner les agriculteurs dans la transition agroécologique

Abstract : In order to reduce herbicide use, new tools are needed to accompany farmers and crop advisors designing weed management strategies that use few or no herbicides. To this end, we developed a Decision Support System (DSS) for designing cropping systems accommodating both crop and ecosystem protection. Our approach combined development of the tool structure, with future users, with the simplification of the research model FlorSys, which simulates the impact of cropping systems on crop production and weed dynamics. FlorSys is a “virtual field” where cropping-system impacts on weeds dynamics are simulated at the field scale. The resulting DSS consists of: (1) tables listing the most influential cropping techniques, (2) decision trees presenting combinations of numerous cropping practices to reach a weed management goal (e.g. combine low herbicide use with low yield loss) and (3) a fast cropping system evaluation tool to live-test cropping systems, in particular during participatory workshops co-designing cropping systems with farmers
