By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise’s (MAFSE) Cayo Extension Department held a queen rearing workshop for young beekeepers at the Central Farm Demonstration Apiary on Thursday.

“The objective of the training is to provide beekeepers with hands-on experience in queen grafting by using the Doolittle method,” MAFSE said in a social media post.

“Queen rearing can help create a more self-sufficient and effective apiary. Having a healthy queen can help to increase colony productivity or increase the number of colonies.”

The training facilitated by Extension Officer Jesse Madrid assisted by Freddy Tut, queen rearing beekeeper, was attended by eight young beekeepers and three students from the University of Belize Central Farm Campus.

Coincidentally, the University of Belize and MAFSE today signed a memorandum of understanding to establish institutional cooperation.

“The University of Belize and the Ministry of Agriculture Food Security and Enterprise will cooperate in collective efforts and resources, to build capacity, share and promote knowledge transfer, expertise, data and information to strengthen the common interests and respective missions of both institutions,” MAFSE said in a social media post.

But even before today’s formal agreement, MAFSE has been collaborating with UB for several years now.
