De quelle manière peut-on agir pour améliorer l'efficacité du processus de production de jeunes plants de camélias au sein de l'entreprise Roué Pépinières ?

Abstract : Located in Brittany (France), the company Roué Pépinières is specialized in camellias culture and offers to garden centers and retailers a varied range of cultivars. The production is made in soilless containers and leads to the sale of flowered plants in C4, C7,5 and C15 pots. At the beginning of the process, the nursery carries out itself the propagation of camellias starting from cuttings taken from the cultures. The rooting of the cuttings takes place in autumn under greenhouse in steamed conditions under plastic film. However, today, the company wonders about its capacity and its interest to maintain this internal production of young plants. A technico-economic study is thus necessary in order to support the reflection. At first, the approach consists in describing the current situation. The economic audit allows demonstrating the satisfactory effectiveness of the process. With a view of carry on the activity, we can take advantage of the technical audit to identify ways of improvements. Three priority axes are highlighted: the management of the activity, the yield efficiency of the multiplication process and the productivity of the labour. Indeed, to improve the efficiency of the process, it is, at first, essential to evolve towards a clearer and more coherent management of the activity. The acquired knowledge concerning the development of the camellia and the principles of taking of cuttings of the woody shrubs allow, then, to underline the importance of the management of mothers-plants, the cutting kind choice and the stage of propagation. A better control of the conditions during rooting period is desirable to increase the current yield. Finally, the weight of the workforce requires thinking about a rational reworking of the operations.
