By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise (MAFSE) is registering Belize District farmers who are not yet included in the Belize Agriculture Information Management System (BAIMS).

“If you are a farmer and haven’t been registered this is the time for you to register,” MAFSE said in a social media post.

“For Farmers who have been registered, you are advised to visit the agriculture department to update your information.”

Through the BAIMS registration, MAFSE has a database on the number of farmers, their farms, and farming practices and can better develop plans for the development and improvement of agriculture in the country.

 

For farmers to be registered in BAIMS they must be Belizeans, be 18 years or older, provide proof of identity, have more than 0.5 of an acre of land under cultivation, and gain 30% or more of their income from their farming activities.

“Registration is necessary because farmers, buyers, and government need information when making production and business decisions,” says a BAIMS flyer.

The BAIMS registry also comes in handy in cases of flood relief so that the Government can know how to identify beneficiaries and properly disburse whatever aid it might have.

BAIMS said it is targeting individual farmers or groups including companies that are cultivating crops or rearing livestock.
