Solagro is an NGO set up in 1981, independent of all political movements, industrial and financial groups. With a permanent team of 24 experts – engineers in agriculture, environmental technique, energy and economists – and a membership of 200, Solagro’s goal is to broaden the scope of possibilities within the fields of energy, agriculture and the environment. Our field of work includes: development programmes, prospective and feasibility studies, independent evaluation and consulting, setting up of pilot operations and information, training and technical publications.

Solagro is a leader in France in the design of evaluation tools ( and indicators, assisting farmers in shifting their production methods towards serving economic viability and the environment. Solagro also leads the practical development of agroecology in France, notably through its support to various agro-ecological infrastructure projects (hedges, orchards…).
