By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Agriculture today issued a statement informing the public that no recommendation has been given to anyone to import carrots.
Harvesting for carrots started in December 2018 and is expected that farmers will supply the domestic market until June 2019.
Communities that are harvesting carrots include La Gracia, El Progresso and San Antonio in the Cayo District and Roseville in Stann Creek District.
Other crops that are also in harvesting mode are romaine lettuce, onions and potatoes, which are also expected to last until the end of June.
In addition, the ministry says that the only time when the recommendation for importation is given is when there is a deficit in production and the local demand is not met.
