Pineapple is the third most important tropical fruit in world production after bananas and citrus. While Africa has a great geographical and economic advantage as a very large portion of the continent is located in the tropics, the quantities produced are still low.
Drip irrigation can help. It is ideal for growing pineapple as it applies the right nutrients, in the right quantity and at the right time, while improving soil oxygen, minimizing root decomposition and preventing runoff. Moreover, drip irrigation also increases Brix and enables farmers to apply the right amount of nematicides and pesticides in the most efficient way.
