Although, the farm is technically and financially self-reliant, we have news to share with you : In the 1st semester of 2014, the 330m2 of the Ibity site produced 181kg of spirulina, which represents a productivity rate of 3.1g/m2/day. Contractually 20% of this output goes to the Nutrition House, which is managed by Antenna Technologies Antsirabé.
This farm, originally directly managed by ATA has been since 2013 under the management of the Nutrispir-Antenna association, founded by Christian RANDRIANASOLE, former Operations Director at ATA.
This farm is now fully self-reliant technically and financially.
All the ponds are operational, covering a total surface of 330m2. The production this semester amounted to 181 kg, bringing the productivity rate up to 3.1g/m2/day. 20% of the production, i.e. 36kg, has been donated to the Nutrition House. The spirulina is then handed out for free to the malnourished children of Antsirabé. Currently 4 permanent staff work on the farm.
