By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise (MAFSE) has acquired 10,000 Brazilian dwarf coconut seednuts in a measure to boost industry.
“We are trying to diversify the agriculture base in the North and we have begun with setting in 10,000 seednuts of the Brazilian dwarf coconut. We are doing it between the Ministry of Agriculture and SIRDI,” said MAFSE Minister Jose Abelardo Mai.
Mai said the seednuts were procured from Sergio Marroquin’s farm in Blue Creek.
Breaking Belize News understands that the Brazilian dwarf coconut is in high demand because it is high yielding and the water it produces is of high quality.
The Brazilian dwarf coconut seednuts were procured earlier this week and are being planted at the SIRDI station in Buena Vista, Corozal, and at the Yo Creek agriculture station in Orange Walk. The Ministry said that early next year the seedlings will be sold at a reasonable price to farmers interested in producing coconut water, particularly in northern Belize.
