By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Mexico’s Secretary of Agriculture has offered to help Belize’s Ministry of Agriculture develop it fruit trees crops, particularly lime, coconut, and soursop.

At the ministerial meeting in Chetumal, Quintana Roo, between the Mexico Minister of Agriculture and Rural development Dr. Víctor Manuel Villalobos Arámbula and the Belize Minister of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise Jose Abelardo Mai on Thursday, Villalobos said Mexico will help Belize genetically improve a number of fruit crops, especially lime, coconut and soursop.

According to the Mexico Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development communiqué, the Mexican delegation offered to share with Belize its advances developed by the National Institute of Forestry, Agriculture, and Livestock Research (INIFAP).

INIFAP has developed in vitro cloning of varieties of lime, coconut, and soursop, which it says are products in great demand in Belize.

The Mexican Agriculture Ministry communiqué noted that Minister Mai said Belize has the technology to start the research developed by the Mexican technicians and that as a first step what the Belizean technicians need is the training and samples of the varieties that INIFAP is developing.
