By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise (MAFSE) is advising all farmers in low-lying and flood-prone areas to safeguard their families and livelihoods.

In an advisory on Monday, MAFSE recommended farmers to mitigate the potential effects of Tropical Storm Julia, now a tropical depression, by following a number of measures:

MAFSE advised crop producers “to harvest available and mature crops; make a note of all crops planted and production amounts; and store harvested crops in cool, dry areas to avoid spoilage or losses”.

The advice to producers with tropical greenhouses or cover structures is “to remove covering materials (UV plastic and anti-viral netting); safely store equipment and supplies; and to make a note of all crops planted and production amounts, including taking pictures of the structure(s)”.

MAFSE recommended livestock producers “to temporarily relocate animals to safer areas; ensure availability of animal feed and water; and make a count of all animals”.

Farm inputs are advised “to secure all farm machinery and farm inputs and relocate all pesticides and pesticide containers to avoid spillage and contamination”.
