By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Eleven members from Los Agricultores del Paraiso Group in Paraiso, Corozal District, received a training session on the preparation of an organic fertilizer known as Bokashi on Saturday.
The training was facilitated by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise (MAFSE) along with Resilient Rural Belize in the Ministry of Economic Development.
“Bokashi is a type of composting in which you seal food scraps and organic waste in an airtight container,” said MAFSE.
In Bokashi mix, the layers of biodegradable organic materials consisting of food waste and similar organic matter are left to ferment until it becomes a soil amendment which adds nutrients and improves soil texture.
“Due to the high cost of fertilizer the Ministry has been working with farmers to implement new alternatives to defray the cost of fertilizers,” said MAFSE.
Present at the training session were Extension Officers Carlos Martinez, Samuel Cocom and Sandra Medina from Resilient Rural Belize.
