The experimentation unit of Cerestis is based in the departement Aube, inside Champagne, at Saint Léger sous Brienne.
Far from 30 km to Troyes, 75 km from Châlons-en-Champagne and 120 km from Auxerre, Cerestis can act on several departments:
- Yonne and Côte d’Or in the South
- Haute Marne in the East
- Marne in the North.
This large zone allows us to propose several pedoclimatic conditions: chalky field, loamy valleys or hillsides.
Based inside the first French agricultural region, where 62% of the territory is cultivated, Cerestis has a large sample of crops:
- Field crops (cereals, oilseed rape, maize, sunflower, sugar beets, peas…)
- Vegetables (cabbage, potatoes, onions….)
- Other crops more specific as Lucerne, opium poppy or lentils
- Grape vigne
Thanks to its farmers network, we have a selection of plots which allows us to be in line with our clients’ request.
