Press Release from Ministry of Agriculture

The Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security and Enterprise (MAFSE), in partnership with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, has conducted extensive consultations on the development of its seed policy.

Farmers from both the Northern and Southern regions, as well as Seed Importers and Distributors, have actively participated in the drafting process. This consultative approach ensures that the policy reflects the diverse needs and perspectives of key stakeholders in the agricultural sector.

This morning technical personnel from the Ministry of Agriculture, the Belize Agricultural Health Authority (BAHA), and the Bureau of Standards gathered in Belmopan to finalize the drafting of the Seed Policy. This collaborative effort underscores a commitment to establishing an inclusive and sustainable national seed sector, ensuring farmers and other seed users have consistent access to affordable, high-quality seeds.

The overarching goal of the Seed Policy is to provide a strategic orientation that clearly outlines the actions, roles, and responsibilities of key stakeholders. Through this, the initiative aims to create the necessary conditions gradually and continuously for a viable and harmonious seed sector. The ultimate objective is to sustainably increase agricultural productivity, strengthen food security, and preserve biodiversity. As the collaborative efforts continue to progress, it is anticipated that the Seed Policy will serve as a cornerstone for fostering a resilient and sustainable agricultural landscape in Belize.
