Veronique Sarthou is currently a Consultant at Syrphys Agro-Environment. In this role, Veronique works with farming and farmers organizations, natural reserves, national parks, and local organizations and provides counsel and resources with the goal of bettering the earth. She works as an engineer in agronomy, ecology and entomology.
After 7 years in research and development in the pesticide industry, she created her own structure, a research and development office linking agronomy and ecology. 20 years ago, it was very difficult to put in the same sentence agronomy and ecology or environment. The aim of the office is to make the agricultural profession understand the advisability of using nature to alleviate health problems, and the ecologists the interest of working with farmers and of no longer seeing them as enemies. This objective is achieved through training programs, conferences, or participation in research programs. It also performs ecological diagnostics of environments (agroecosystems, natural forests, mountain ecosystems, etc.) using a family of bioindicator insects (the Diptera Syrphidae), which are also excellent crop auxiliaries.
Veronique holds her Master of Science in Agricultural Engineering from Ecole Nationale Superieure Agronomique de Toulouse -Toulouse-INP), which she earned in 1988; and a second one in 1997 in the same University. Also a prolific writer, she has been published in several scientific journals. Moving forward, she would like to work outside of France and hopes to expand her business by networking as much as possible with likeminded professionals worldwide.
