By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security and Enterprise (MAFSE) says the five-day beekeeping training which ends on Friday is progressing well at the Yo Creek Agriculture Station in Orange Walk District.
The training seminar, which started on Monday, is being conducted in collaboration with the Mexican International Agency for Cooperation and Development (Amexcid) and Mexico’s National Research Institute of Forestry, Agriculture and Livestock (INIFAP) as part of the Mexico-Belize Technical and Scientific Cooperation Program.
“The training topics include i) general beekeeping, ii) alternative control of the small hive beetle, iii) meliponiculture, iv) alternative feeding, and v) hive division,” stated a press release by the Government of Belize Press Office.
“The training aims to equip participants with the knowledge to tackle the rising issues of climate change, small hive beetle issues and the production of honey from stingless bees (meliponiculture).”
The Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise said the training is being conducted by Mexican technical experts from INIFAP, Dr. Jorge Ismael Tucuch Haas and Dr. Ruben Guillermo Medina Hernandez.
Twenty beekeepers and eight extension officers are participating in the one-week training.
“The Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security and Enterprise extends its warmest appreciation to the people and Government of Mexico for the opportunity given to Belizean beekeepers to learn and adapt new technologies,” asserted the GOB Press Office press release.
