Agro-Eco-Logy : Is an agriculture that studies and uses soil (fields), as a house hosting a large number of living beings able to let plants grow on their own.


Fertility cycle.
  • Permanent occupation of land and space by plants and animals.
  • Recycle all resources.
  • Minimal environmental disturbance.
  • Biodiversity and large number of actors.
  • Information flow.
  • Sharing abundance: Of products and services.

The aim is to copy nature, it grows all by itself!

Concretely what is Agroecology?

Cover crop

Crops in living soil

  • No tillage.
  • Soil always covered.
  • Maximized biomass production.

Combining crops and livestock

  • Fodder autonomy of farms.
  • Dynamic rotating grazing / mob grazing.

Keyline design.

Promote the water cycle

  • Keyline design.
  • Hill reservoir.
  • Tree plantation.
  • Vegetation continuity in dry period.

Include agroforestry in all systems

  • Wood energy.
  • Climate controller.
  • Fodder agroforestry.
  • Landscape designer.
  • Economically profitable projects.

At home, in town and in schools

  • Living soil vegetable gardening.
  • Edible landscapes.
  • Garden-forest.
  • Productive lianas and trees to produce, air-condition, recycle and beautify.

Spade test.

Simply assess the fertility of your soil

  • Slake test.
  • Spade test.
  • Evaluation of spontaneous biomass.
