Abstract: The AgriBMPWater project has been imagined and built in a pluri-disciplinary approach and framework, with the study of the object 'BMPs' using several disciplines at the same time (hydrology, economy, sociology, geography and agronomy). The knowledge of the object in each discipline is deepened by a fertile multi-field contribution: borders of disciplines have been broken down, allowing crossbreeding between different scientific fields. This crossbreeding becomes necessary as sustainability in agriculture and livestock production gathers together very different and evolving notions. Moreover, crossbreeding between scientific findings and on-farm application contributed to enrich the analysis.
