Nowadays, agriculture has to face the great challenge of balancing the social expectations and environmental costs of food production with the nutritional requirement of a growing population, in the greater context of climate change. In this context, the modification of our eating habits towards more environmentally-friendly and healthy -diets is a key lever. In 2019, the EAT-Lancet commission defined a universal guideline diet that should allow 9 billion people across the globe to be fed healthily while respecting our planet boundaries. In parallel it remains of primary importance to design innovative cropping systems, where agroecological processes are at play, to provide resilience and sustainability to our agroecosystems.
