By Rubén Morales Iglesias: More than 50 farmers and Ministry of Agriculture personnel are participating in a diamond month control in cabbage production.

According to the Minister of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise Jose Abelardo Mai, the one-day training program is facilitated by Rural Resilient Belize, Earth University, the Regional International Organization for Plant Protection and Animal Health (OIRSA), and the Ministry of Agriculture.

The farmers benefiting from the training are members of the Valley of Peace Laguna Farmers’ Co-operative, the Western Mopan Farmers’ Co-operative, the Maya Green Growers Co-operative, the Sayab Farmers’ Co-operative, and the Desarrollo del Progreso (Progress Development) de Valle De Paz Co-operative.

According to Registrar of Cooperatives Gareth Murillo, the training program focused on the evaluation of biological agents to control the effects of the diamond-back moth on cabbage production. The program, which includes methodologies for safer and healthier crop and food production, seeks to teach farmers how to use biological agents to reduce their losses and become more competitive.
