Abstract : Organic agriculture is developing slowly in Martinique, a French Department in Caribbean area. In 2010, the total certified acreage reached about 100 ha, with a further 6 ha in conversion, cultivated by a total of 24 certified organic (Agriculture Biologique) farms. There are two organic farmers' associations: "La Bio des Antilles", certified under the French AB regulations; and the "Orgapeyi" association, which uses a form of participative certification. How could the local organic production be boosted to supply the local market for organic products? This paper proposes to answer this question by reviewing three activities by various research institutions including CIRAD to address organic production. (Résumé d'auteur)
