By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security and Enterprise and Sugar Industry Research and Development Institute (SIRDI) personnel on Tuesday made a presentation and demonstration on the use and application of the biological control agent, Metarhizium, to students and teachers of San Pablo Community School.
“The school has agriculture built onto its curriculum and promotes organic production and integrated pest control and healthy eating,” MAFSE said in a social media post.
“San Pablo Community Primary School, located in the Orange Walk District, emphasizes teaching real life skills to its students, who mostly hail from San Pablo Village.”
MAFSE added that its extension officers assist the school in its agriculture initiative on a regular basis.
“[The] students have a vegetable garden and tilapia pond that they maintain, practicing sustainable methods of cultivation and innovative agricultural procedures,” MAFSE explained.
