We also sow maize at the CNRS!

When we follow-up these animals (using photos, videos and captures to weigh them), this will allow us to assess the impact of these various crops and associated biodiversity on the hamster’s reproduction and survival until the following year.

These findings will complete and guide farmers in their trials.
