Conservation Agriculture and glyphosate – Strategies, lock-ins and diversity in the Belgian Walloon Region
Is it possible to practice Conservation Agriculture without glyphosate in Wallonia? What are the lock-ins to, and the conditions required for, the development of Conservation Agriculture without total herbicides ?
Lock-Ins and Agency: Towards an Embedded Approach of Individual Pathways in the Walloon Dairy Sector
A qualitative study on how the agency articulates with structural dynamics in the individual trajectories of dairy farmers. A model of interconnected and embedded lock-ins, from the organizational frame of the regime to the individual frame.
Transition potential of cheese-processing niche value chains in the Région Herbagère Liégeoise and Haute Ardenne
Study on the trajectories and issues faced by the dairy farmers in niche cheese-processing value chains, that uncovers systemic lock-ins to alternative pathways of milk production and processing in the Walloon Region
How agricultural research shapes a technological regime that develops genetic engineering but locks out agroecological innovations
This paper shows how the concepts of technological paradigms and trajectories can help analyse the agricultural science and technology landscape and dynamics. Genetic engineering and agroecology can be usefully analysed as two different technological paradigms.
This article identifies twelve factors impeding wider adoption of multi-resistant cultivars. These factors explain why current wheat-cropping systems are maintained in a ‘pesticide lock-in’ situation.
