By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Belize Agro Enterprise Ltd (BAEL) is making its first export of Effective Microorganisms (EM.1®) biofertilizer to Jamaica on Wednesday, May 18.
According to General Manager of BAEL, William Usher, the company is exporting two pallets worth USD $14,000 of its biofertilizer which uses EM Technology™.
“We will be having our first commercial export to Jamaica which consists of 100 cases of the Original Dr. Higa’s EM.1® product,” GM Usher said.
“We have been working on trying to get our EM Technology™ within CARICOM as we are the licensed manufacturer and distributor of this Japanese technology called Effective Microorganisms (or EM™). That’s our market, exclusive market, nobody else could legally manufacture or distribute EM Technology™ within the CARICOM without our prior consent or permission.”
According to Usher, EM.1® is a technology that can be used to bio-remediate soils and improve soil conditions to allow for efficient use of chemical fertilizer and nutrients from the soil and suppress or reduce soil diseases.
“It’s a technology that can be used as a probiotic in improving feed conversion rate with animals, allowing for animals to grow healthier, improving the digestive system while at the same time improving feed conversion rate.”
Usher said EM Technology™ reduces the costs of feed and can reduce the cost of chemical fertilizers and pesticide use. The technology is also used in wastewater management to clean industrial and sewage wastewater.
“We could use it to clean industrial wastewater allowing for that water to go into the natural environment without any problem,” he said.
EM Technology™, which is used worldwide, has been used in Belize for the last 12 years and Belize Agro Enterprise Ltd has been exporting to Barbados over the last six years. And now they are finally getting their product to Jamaica.
“This is significant in that we have convinced the Rural Agriculture Development Agency (RADA), which is a government agency that deals with agricultural research and agriculture development for agricultural production in Jamaica, with trials that we have been doing with our own distributor over there. We are sending products from a commercial standpoint now for our distributor to start using and promoting it in different areas, in livestock and crop production,” said Usher.
And now that Belize Agro Enterprise is penetrating the Jamaica market, Usher is setting his eyes on Trinidad and Tobago. He said they have previously sent a sample to Trinidad and Tobago in hope of penetrating the market there as well.
