Impact des conditions environnementales et de production sur la qualité du haricot AOC Coco de Paimpol

Abstract : Producers of Coco de Paimpol, vegetable that is certified "Protected Designation of Origin" since 1998, are now wanting to strengthen their specifications in order to guarantee the quality of the product. With this in mind, the possibility of leading a selection of the fields where Coco de Paimpol would be grown, aiming at eliminating the fields that are less favourable, has been put forward. The aim of this study is to establish whether links do exist or not between environmental factors, cultural techniques and successful Coco growing. These factors could then become criteria on which the field selection would be based. A network of 16 fields has been set up, on which data is collected concerning climate, pedology, flowering, yield and quality, and also environmental and cultural factors that are supposed to have an influence on yield and quality. Then, links are established between low level of yield or quality components, and environmental or cultural factors. Eventually the results are compared with producers' experience. No link has been shown between growing success and environmental factors. This was also the opinion of the producers. We should moderate this thinking of the particularly wet climate occurring during the year of the study, and the low number of fields on which the study has been carried out.
