By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise (MAFSE) is meeting with onion producers in the North to plan 2022-23 production.

“MAFSE coordinating meeting with onion producers for production year 2022-23 to discuss previous production and present projections for 22/23,” said MAFSE in a social media post.

MAFSE said that under the Government’s Plan Belize, they “will address challenges and opportunities to improve onion production for higher yields, thus ensuring potential for more income for farmers.

Present at the meeting are farmers and technical personnel from Orange Walk, Corozal, and Belize Districts, said MAFSE.

This past year’s projections had onion production at over 3 million pounds from 156 acres planted in the Northern Districts.

The Ministry’s National Extension Service normally has these projection meetings with the onion producers at the Yo Creek Agriculture Station in Orange Walk. Normally, onions are scheduled to be harvested in the third week of December and are at market outlets within the first week of January. The expected harvest months range from December to April.
