What are the main uses of pesticides in the Province of Luxembourg (Southern Belgium) ? How can we accompany actors from the agricultural sector to engage in pathways to reduce the use of pesticides ?
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.
