ANANABIO: A project to design organic pineapple cropping systems through a participative approach between research and producers

Soler A., Dorey E.. 2017. Pineapple News (24) : p. 21-29.

ANANABIO is a multi-partnership project (2016-2018) associating Research (CIRAD) with a technical institute (ARMEFLHOR) on Reunion Island (Indian Ocean) to design innovative practices for environmental-friendly organic pineapple cropping systems. Other partners of the project are the local administrative support to farmers (Agriculture Chamber and agricultural training school), professional organizations of farmers and independent farmers as well. Pineapple produced under the French Organic production specifications are marketed with the label'Agriculture Biologique' (AB) of the French Ministry of Agriculture. The project proposes through a participatory approach to encourage farmers to co-design cropping systems with agronomists and to evaluate their performances. As far as cultural practices are concerned, ANANABIO focuses on the destruction of old crops and mechanized planting, organic fertilizer application, the pest and weeds management, and production of disease-free planting material. These cropping systems should also follow the Agroecology concept that promotes an agriculture that respects and protects man in his environment.
