The French Academy of Agriculture visited the Centre Français du Riz

The French Academy of Agriculture visited the French Rice Center in Arles on the 7th and 8th June 2018. The Camargue rice production and the different activities of the French Rice Center were presented to the 17 academy members attendants as well as new opportunities for the future (alternative practices, drones, new herbicides). This was an excellent opportunity for Cyrille THOMAS to introduce them the objectives and the results of the GreenRice project and to reply to their pertinent questions.
