Article
Full-text available
Miscanthus is a perennial C4 crop whose lignocellulose can be used as an alternative to the production of biosourced material. Miscanthus x giganteus (M. x giganteus) has demonstrated high maximum yields but also high yield variability across farmers’ fields. Miscanthus sinensis (M. sinensis) can be an alternative to M. x giganteus because it is co...

Botrytis cinerea, a fungal pathogen that causes gray mold on grapes, can decrease yield, substantially reduce wine quality, and therefore cause significant economic losses. In a context of increasing awareness of environmental and human health, biopesticides are a potential alternative to synthetic chemical treatments to produce grapes and wine in...

Miscanthus is a C4 bioenergy perennial crop characterized by its high potential yield. Our study aimed to compare the carbon storage capacities of Miscanthus sinensis (M. sinensis) with that of Miscanthus × giganteus (M. × giganteus) in field conditions in different types of soils in France. We set up a multi-environment experimental network. On ea...
Thesis
Full-text available
An on-farm research network is an organization of farmers that conducts agronomic experiments under local conditions. There is growing interest in on-farm research networks because they provide the infrastructure needed to test new products and management practices in farmers’ fields. Often, the results are usually presented as individual reports (...
Article
The aim of on-farm research is to identify and test a new technology, product or management practice (e.g. more efficient seeding rate, enhanced row spacing, better disease management treatment, etc.) suited to local conditions by comparing it to a standard farmer practice across several farmers’ fields. Typically, each trial includes two treatment...
Article
The on‐farm research network concept enables a group of farmers to test new agricultural management practices under local conditions with support from local researchers or agronomists. Different on‐farm trials based on the same experimental design are conducted over several years and sites to test the effectiveness of different innovative managemen...
Article
Full-text available
Miscanthus is a C4 perennial grass originating from East Asia, the yields of which progressively increase in the first years of growth. Several species for bioenergy have been studied since the mid‐1980s in Europe, in particular Miscanthus x giganteus (M. x giganteus), due to its high yields. M. x giganteus is mainly cultivated in France and establ...
Article
Full-text available
An on-farm research network is an organization of farmers that conducts agronomic experiments under local conditions. It is common that an elementary statistical analysis be conducted for individual studies. However, there is unexplored potential in detecting yield response variability patterns for better deci- sion making. We developed a data-anal...
Article
Producing biofuels from crops is controversial due to environmental issues and to food security threats linked with the dedication of land to energy crops rather than to food production. The 2009 European Renewable Energy Directive defined the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as an essential requirement for biofuels. Whatever their speci...

Article
The estimation of energy crop yields is important, to help the firms responsible for collecting them to estimate biomass production in a given area, for example. A Bayesian modelling framework for site-specific yield estimation is presented in this paper. The proposed approach is based on a hierarchical model describing between-site and within-site...
Article
Many crops are candidate sources of renewable energy. Energy crop yields vary between species, but no global study has been carried out to rank energy crops on the basis of existing yield data. In this study, we analyzed a large set of yield data obtained for 36 energy crop species and ranked these species according to their productivity. We carrie...
Conference Paper
Energy crop yields vary between species, but no global study has been carried out to rank energy crops on the basis of existing yield data. We carried out a systematic literature review, and extracted 856 yield data from 28 published papers for 36 energy crop species. A statistical analysis, based on direct and indirect comparisons, was performed t...
