- ... Reduction of pesticide use is one of the main objectives in tropical fruit and vegetable production. To meet this objective, CIRAD proposed solutions based on the agroecological approach. The hypothesis is that increasing biodiversity in the agro-horticultural system will allow reduction of pesticide use by favoring ecological regulation mechanisms. To organize the research, CIRAD has set up diffe ...
