Caractérisation de la diversité des exploitations des Antilles Françaises via la mise en place de pratiques agroécologiques

Abstract : Agroecology, see here as a set of practices, is a promising alternative to the new challenges facing agriculture. In this study an agroecological practices (PAE) indicator was constructed and a method developed to characterize farms based on their production factors and strategies, their performance and the implementation of PAE. This methodological framework was applied to 92 farms in Guadeloupe and 123 farms in Martinique. In each of the 2 islands, 5 types of farms with different strategies towards agroecological practices were observed. It appears that 50% of the farms in the sample studied have animals. As a result, 48% of farms use crop by-products as animal feed and 46.5% fertilize their crops with manure. The rationale for crop livestock integration and the need for support and researches would depend on the type of farm.
