By Rubén Morales Iglesias: While the Mexican Agency of International Cooperation for Development (Amexcid) and the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise (MAFSE) were busy distributing agricultural packages for the Sembrando Vida Project farmers in the Stann Creek and Corozal Districts, Sembrando Vida extension officers were busy doing a bio-fertilizer demonstration for farmers of the Trinidad and San Lazaro area of the Orange Walk District.

According to MAFSE, the demonstrations are part of the outreach the Sembrando Vida project provides for farmers. In the case of the Orange Walk farmers, they had just received their agricultural packages the day before at the Yo Creek Agric Center.

MAFSE said the objective of the Sembrando Vida project funded by the Mexican Agency of International Cooperation for Development (Amexcid), is for farmers to become self-sustaining.

“Its main objective is to promote socio-economic development and cooperation between the two countries in the agricultural sector,” MAFSE said.

The project consists of three main components: Economic Package, Agricultural Package, and Capacity Building/Training Component.

The farmers receive BZ $2,000 over the duration of the 8-month project. They are also provided with an Agriculture Package, which includes essential resources such as seeds, fertilizers, tools, fruit trees, and forest trees.

The third component, under which the bio-fertilizer demonstration for the farmers of the Trinidad and San Lazaro area of the Orange Walk District falls, is the Capacity Building/Training Component. This component seeks to train farmers in various aspects of agriculture to build their skills, techniques, and knowledge in order to improve their farming practices and ensure the long-term sustainability of the project’s impact.
