Project Title: Plant diversity in intensively managed grasslands: a sustainable way to productivity in a changing environment

Overview: From an agronomic background, I am now studying how multi-species swards could be an answer to environmental concerns maintaining high level of performance in Irish intensive systems. I am testing different levels of biodiversity at low input levels, showing better productivity and sustainability than high input ryegrass monocultures.

I would like to pursue on such topics at the crossroad between ecology, agronomy and animal science. Long-term objective is to take after the family farm to produce organic milk, meat and vegetables in France.

Programme Area: Grassland Science and Ecology
