Thus, a program of technical experiments and a network of observation plots are set up each year in order to fight against bio-aggressors of the crop while paying the greatest attention to the respect of the environment.
Lentil is a crop with low mineral requirements. Volcanic soils are rich enough to feed the plant properly. Moreover, lentil is a legume and thanks to its nodules, it has the ability to capture nitrogen from the air and transform it into mineral nitrogen.
Due to its small size, lentils are sensitive to climatic hazards which directly impact yield.
