This thesis is set in the global scope of reducing dependency on agricultural inputs. The current challenge to which agriculture is confronted has become a national priority, with the “grenelle de l’environement” and the Ecophyto 2018 action plan which aims to lower by 50% the amounts of inputs in agricultural systems by 2018. The general aim is to develop a method which enables to anticipate and evaluate the consequences of any change in agricultural practices and the integration of integrated crop protection on field crops on a national scale.
