  3. 3. Objectives •Show scientific evidences that prove how Lupin is a protein crop able to perform in drylands. •Understand how Lupin – as a traditional crop – could exploit the local knowledge and enhance farmer activity in social and economic context. •Connect scientific and popular knowledges on Lupin.
  4. 4. HOWTO BRIDGE DIFFERENT SCIENCES AND POPULAR KNOWLEDGE?
  5. 5. Methodology 1 Transdisciplinarity Collaboration in which exchanging information, altering discipline-specific approaches, sharing resources and integrating disciplines achieves a common scientific goal. Transdisciplinary research allows investigators to transcend their own disciplines to inform one another’s work, capture complexity, and create new intellectual spaces involving popular knowledges and practices (Rosenfield 1992)

  7. 7. Methodology 2 Third Heaven "It is the fusion between the first and second paradise. The first is the paradise in which humans were fully integrated into nature. The second is the artificial paradise, developed by humans through a process that has now reached globalizing proportions. The idea of the Third Paradise is to lead artifice, that is, science, technology, culture and political life, back to the Earth, while engaging in the reestablishment of common principles and ethical behavior, for on these the actual success of the project depends."
  8. 8. NATURE
  9. 9. Nature Lupins Lupins is a very ancient legume, from the family of Fabaceae, used as food since 3000 years in the Mediterranean region (Uauy et al. 1995). Lupins is able to be efficient in drylands and with a very interesting nutritional connotations. This legume is well known as a fundamental plant in crop rotation in order to fix nitrogen and improve the quality of the soil, thanks to its root system. It is sown in October and it’s flowering at half may till the end of June.
  10. 10. SCIENCE
  11. 11. Science 1 Lupins in Nutriotional Science The beneficial effects of Lupins on our health are different. Lupin is a very important element in a balanced diet due to its high content of essential amino-acids, the large contribution of fibers (INRAN 2016), the low glycaemic index and the fact of being gluten free.

  13. 13. Science 2 Lupins in Agroecology Lupins World Producers: Australia South Africa Argentina Equador Peru Egypt Morocco Italy Spain (FAO stat. 2015)
  14. 14. Science 2 Lupins in Agroecology Enhanced water use efficiency is possible by using appropriate plant species, and Lupins is a promising legume able to adapt in drylands (Izaurralde et al. 2011). For instance, in the Mediterranean environments it was proven how Lupins can increase the availability of Nitrogen in the soil if introduced in rotation with wheat (Espinoza et al 2015). Another issue related to drylands is the acidification of the soil. Lupins permits to stop the increase of the acidity of the soil and avoid external inputs as limestone (Conyers et al 1996).
  15. 15. SOCIETY
  16. 16. Society Lupins & People Slow food is a grassroots network whose supporters are linking traditional and good food with commitment to their community and the environment. In Italy Lupins found his local and historic variety promoted by Slow Food as the Giant Lupin of Vairano. July 22, 2012 Footer text here16
  17. 17. SOCIETY SCIENCENATURE
  18. 18. Conclusions Conduct research on Lupins - pulses - should be done through a transdisciplinary approach in order to have a local variety to share with society which is promote on scientific evidences Slow food is an effective example in which local and ancient pulses through scientific knowledges find a meeting point : the third paradise.
