Theme day on legumes at the CFPPA in Matiti (23.01.2016)
Solicaz took part in the leguminous event at Matiti Agricultural High School, which brought together about 40 people, actors from the agricultural world.
The guests visited the fodder platform and the active fallow of the school before discovering the different experiments carried out by IKARE and Solicaz at the local level.
G. Paul has developed the subject of agroforestry with fixing trees. She presented the results of the planting of several Inga legume species (sweet pea) on degraded soil at depth to show the beneficial effects that nitrogen fixing trees can have in the agroforestry sector.
The topics covered were:
- The process of nitrogen fixation by legumes
- Practical case of the experimentation on a mine site on the ground degraded in depth.
- The advantages of agroforestry and the possible associations.
