GO INPULSE

Excessive dependence on imports of protein for animal feed

Description

Excessive dependence on imports of protein for animal feed, especially soy, undermines the competitiveness and sustainability of the entire value chain.

The INPULSE Operating Group (GO_INPULSE) was created to strengthen the cultivation of legumes in Spain and reduce the external dependence of protein for feed through the joint work of different actors (COAG, CESFAC, CARTIF, Agri-food cooperative of Aragón, Los Monegros Cooperative, IAS-CSIC, CITA and SERIDA)

 

 

Objectives

  • Promote the production and use of legumes in Spain, through the design and evaluation of a systematized mechanism of use of legumes
  • Contribute to the diversification of food systems in Spain, improving its sustainability, favoring the competitiveness and economic development of the animal feed chain
  • Diagnose the needs of the agents of the animal feed chain, and reconnect that chain and encourage the transfer of knowledge to and from research

Actions

  •  Typification and testing of varieties: varieties adapted to different agrosystems and agricultural practices, search for optimal yields in each area
  • Beneficial systems to the environment: reduction of the use of fertilizers, pesticides and water consumption, soil protection and improvement of storage processes
  • Protein quality requirements: quality analysis of protein value, collecting protein needs by sectors, technologies for determining nutritional values

Expected results

  • A group diagnosis document where all the actions carried out are collected
  • Generate and execute an Innovative Project
