LA PRODUCTION FRUITIERE INTEGREE EN GUADELOUPE

The diversity of the crops in the agricultural economic, especially in the isolated island, seems to be important today and has the main aim to expand the capital of the agriculture. The diversity by the different fruits specimens seems to be a interesting choice more than the existing sugarcane crop and the bananas in Guadeloupe. However, in the actual environmental and the public health problems increasing day after day, this diversity must be approved to become a permanent solution. For that reason, only the method of the good quality production, including the results of the crop as well as the agricultural technology throughout the system, will permit to implant the good quality crop in the local market (highly in competition by the imports) and to guarantee the durability of the crops. To produce the good quality fruits, taking into consideration the environmental factors, is a real challenge for the farmers in Guadeloupe. The scheme "integrated fruits production" started in Guadeloupe may reply to these problems. The scheme includes the main actors in the fruit fields (research workers, developing units and the producers) and interfere at the different stages of the production (from the production of the plant to the production of the fruits). The principal consequences are the diminution of the insecticide and fungicide ( the biological and /or the approved effort against the crop enemies among the crops and the seeds),the eradication of the herbicides (plant research units) and the management of the out comings due to the phytosanitary treatments.
