Economic viability of pineapple residues recycling


Ahmed, Osumanu Haruna and Mohd Hanif, Ahmad Husni and Abd. Rahim, Anuar and Musa, Mohamed Hanafi (2003) Economic viability of pineapple residues recycling. Journal of Sustainable Agriculture, 21 (4). pp. 129-137. ISSN 1044-0046


A study was conducted to investigate whether pineapple residues removal before replanting (RM2) could serve as an economically competitive alternative to the existing in situ burning of pineapple residues before replanting (RM1). The Net Present Value (NPV) was used to compare the economic viability of the two residue management practices. Taking into account the cost of environmental pollution associated with burning of pineapple residues, the NPV analysis revealed that RM2 can serve as an economically competitive alternative to RM1.
