The results of the sociological survey on agricultural models and their perception concerning the PHYTOBARRE process are now available.

img Rapport_ActionC1C2

The PHYTOBARRE process represents a technical innovation above all, although it can also provide the medium for a more general discourse on the relationship of man to the environment. This sociological study focused on the agricultural sector, where its aim was to understand the context of the uses of phytopharmaceutical products at the local and national level. Regarding social representations, it also aims to reinsert the PHYTOBARRE within the agricultural community.
