Posted: Friday, September 30, 2022. 9:24 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Thursday, September 29th, 2022, officials from the Ministry of Agriculture convened in San Carlos, Orange Walk for a “Behaviour of Conventional INIFAP Soybean Varieties in Belize”.

The purpose of the event was to share the experience of planting the varieties of soybean being piloted in Belize by INIFAP, the Mexican National Institute for Forestry, Agricultural, and Livestock Research.

There are 4 pilot plots where different varieties of soybean are being grown, in San Carlos, Little Belize, Central Farm, and at the Sugar Industry Research and Development Institute at Buena Vista, Corozal, the Ministry noted.

The soybean research plots have come about as a collaborative effort on the part of the Mexican Secretaria de Agricultura and the Belize Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise, following a bilateral agreement between both governments to work together in different areas.

“Soybean is the first of several commodities where Mexico and Belize will cooperate in research aimed at benefitting both countries,” the Ministry added.

Over 30 local farmers and technical staff of the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security and Enterprise attended the event.

 The event was facilitated by Dr. Mirna Hernandez and Jesus Soto, both INIFAP researchers and Ina Sanchez, Manager of the Central Farm Research and Innovation Center.

Another event involving high-level officials from both Mexican and Belizean agriculture ministries will take place on October 13.
