What is Les Terrenales ?
Les Terrenales aims to bring together EIF innovations and increase their visibility, in one location, over two days.
This is the leading event for those who choose to experiment with, and are interested in exploring all the options for agriculture of the future.
In constant evolution, EIF is enriched by feedback from Forward Looking Farmers. On their farms, these professionals are already using technologies and methods to optimise productivity: using fewer chemicals and fossil fuels and less water. By adding value to their production, they also save time and money.
The 2015 event, designed with a range of agricultural partners, will highlight the necessity for change to be brought “together” through innovation and identification of the positive triggers for change wherever they may be found, via: farmers, farming professionals and engineers, biologists, researchers, veterinarians, biodiversity specialists, etc.

Practising Ecologically Intensive Farming
The new challenge for this century is keeping farming highly productive without threatening our ecosystems: producing more, of a better quality, with less. Producing more: in order to feed a growing population at a price that is accessible to as many as possible; producing better quality products: in order to improve their nutritional quality and contribute via food to the maintenance of human health; with less: by significantly reducing the use of chemical products and non-renewable substances. To achieve this, innovation is necessary in order to better use the natural potential of soil and plants and to ensure that the animal and its well-being is once again placed at the heart of our farming practices.
