By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Fourteen Belizeans, participants from within the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security and Enterprise and the private sector are attending a 4 day soybean training seminar in Yucatan, Mexico.
The seminar is being held from March 28 to March 31, 2023.
The seminar will focus on agronomic management from planting to harvesting, use of technology and innovation in soybean production over the course of 3 days.
On day 4, they will participate in a National Soybean Forum, where a field day showcasing the different soybean varieties produced in Mexico will be held.
At the forum, technical experts from all across Mexico will share their experiences in the soybean industry and businesses will exhibit machinery and value added products.
Participants include representation from the Mennonite community in Spanish Lookout and Blue Creek, CARDI, MAFSE Extension Department, farmers and members from the private sector.
The soybean training sessions are part of the bilateral agreement for cooperation in agriculture signed between Belize and Mexico in August 2021.
Since that signing, Mexican experts have visited Belize several times to observe trials and share information on varieties, cultivation and best practices and Belizean farmers and extension officers are visiting Mexico as part of the program.
The training sessions are being organized by the Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Forestales, Agricolas y Pecuarias (National Institute of Forestry, Crop and Livestock Research).
