By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise (MAFSE) is featuring hot pepper growers in Stann Creek District as it promotes the cultivation of this very important product that feeds the hot pepper industry.

On Thursday, MAFSE featured four farmers from Southern Belize who are into pepper farming.
Breaking Belize News ran a story in which MAFSE highlighted the Alta Vista farm of Carlos Lopez off the Hummingbird Highway.

After that, MAFSE posted three more pictorials of other farmers all of whom have received technical assistance and guidance from Stann Creek extension and the Horticulture Unit as part of critical efforts to improve production practices in the district, given the huge market potential for that commodity in Stann Creek.

MAFSE posted photos of new hot pepper farmer Aaron Garbutt’s seedlings. Like the other farmers, Garbutt is getting technical assistance from Stann Creek extension and the Horticulture Unit with his plants.

The same goes for Francisco Villalta’s farm in Redbank, Stann Creek.

The story is the same for the Mennonite community of Roseville between Georgetown and San Pablo Village in the Stann Creek District.

MAFSE said the Roseville farmers harvest other vegetables such as sweet peppers, jalapeños, and cabbages.

“With technical assistance from Stann Creek extension, the plants show minimum wilt compared to last year’s crop,” said MAFSE.
