TAIWANESE VEGETABLE MISSION TO BELIZE GETS NEW EXPERIMENTAL VEGETABLE SPECIALIST
The old Chinese guy retired at Central Farm and the Taiwanese Mission new agriculture manager is SPECIALIST Kun-Mu Cheng, or in Spanish they call him Miguel. He was transferred from a posting in Panama to Belize. Here we are looking at the best growing tomato in Belize they are trying, which is the POLINA. This couple of rows of tomatos are fantastic. They are growing medium large and in large clumps. He tells me he turned over chicken manure in the planting bed a few weeks before planting. He is getting a better result than I had last year. Probably because this is the cool season with lots of rain?
