Anybody knows what soil is required to grow Pineapple? can you grow in sandy soil?

My friend grew the type of pineapple that is normally only found in South Thailand. Everyone including local ‘big-wig experts’ from the college of farming & horticulture said that it couldn’t be done so one year later he asked them to re-visit his farm with hundreds successfully growing.
They copy him now.

Just out of curiosity I once grew a couple in a 50/50 mix of sand and potting mix, so yes you can. They are bromeliads and need good drainage.

We have 5 Rai of Pineapple in Chiang Rai, the big issue for this one is being submerged in water. If the land is on a slope this is a plus for the water run off.

I always  thought pineapples liked light land and they grew best in the southern provinces of Thailand .

But ,can anyone remember TV's Redbullhorn ,him of the catfish ,he posted a thread about someone near him doing very well growing pineapples, like Isan Farang  he was somewhere near Chaing  Rai ,so it can be done ,if I remember right the soil was on the heavy side. 

I suppose it is like rubber, when I first come to Thailand  rubber was only grown down south ,now Issan grows a lot ,seams no set places to grow any crops now .

PS Khwaibah,  a friend of mine use to work on a dairy co-op at Bang Supan ,in Prachuap Provence ,a lot of pineapples where grown in the area ,and any that did not make the grade ect , where feed to the dairy cows ,so if you have any left over ,your beef cattle would like them.
