Two test sites were the subject of new practices in 2016, in Saint-Jean-de-Folleville and Rouen: frequent mowing has given way to two annual mowings with collection of cut residues.


The objective is to let nature take charge and increase the diversity of ecological niches. In the future, this concept should be extended to all the areas maintained by the Port of Rouen, leaving room for the development of biodiversity.
