Describe past or present professional activities relevant to bananas:
My main research activity is to characterize cover crops and to identify how to use it as weed control methods in banana cropping systems. Then I deal with minimizing nutrient competition of living cover with the banana crop. In order to follow these objectives I use different approaches from plant physiology, plant community ecology, soil and crop management.
