Développement de systèmes hors-sol innovants pour jardins urbains : projet national prod'urban

Abstract : Innovative cropping systems represent a solution to the current problems of over-use of fossil water resources and inputs in the horticultural field. These systems also answer to the increasing demand of crop production in urban areas by individuals and professionals. During our study, we have tested various aeroponics culturs and we compare them to conventional production system. For this, we selected different ranges of plants: aromatic, floral and fruit to answer to the different challenges of food and ornamental productions. The results of our study have shown that classical culture offer better performance for the height, the final biomass and the quality of plants. However, the results of vegetative cover in innovative culture systems (vertical crops adapted to limited urban spaces) showed very good results after a vegetative development in aeroponics. By improving the aeroponics system and managing to better control the growth parameters, it would be possible to consider culture in aeroponics as a solution to allow more sustainable horticultural and food production in urban zones.
