THE ISLAND OF THE BANANAS

THE ISLAND OF THE BANANAS

Discovering an organic banana's plantation

BANANA, THE MOST COMMON CROP IN LA PALMA

Bananas are the main source of the island's economy, along with tourism. Approximately 40% of the cultivated area on La Palma is dedicated to the cultivation of bananas. The products grown are mainly destined for the Spanish market, around 95%. The large area of land it occupies, added to its importance in economic terms, make the banana a factor of capital social, economic and environmental importance for the island. For some years now, more and more farmers have decided to opt for an ecological, sustainable crop, without the use of pesticides and respectful of the environment, which, being an island, is even more fragile.

“Traditional agriculture requires a lot of work, industrial agriculture requires a lot of energy, and systems designed in permaculture require a lot of information.”
