Contribution to the study of farming systems in Reunion: classification of the sugar cane farming system


, : Contribution to the study of farming systems in Reunion: classification of the sugar cane farming system. Cahiers de Statistique Agricole (5/6): 3-5

The sugar cane farming system in Reunion can be classified into three sub-systems: monoculture, mixed cropping with sugar cane as the dominant crop, and mixed cropping with limited sugar cane production. The relative importance of these sub-systems, farm size, land tenure arrangements, and level and type of farm equipment used are discussed. The economic and financial constraints facing the different farm types are briefly noted.
