TAIWAN AGRICULTURE MISSION FINANCES 10 GREENHOUSE STRUCTURES in Belize.
COVERED GREENHOUSES IN BELIZE
There had been some isolated private sector experimental shaded nurseries and greenhouse type structures in Belize over the past 30 years. It was the Belize Development Trust, three year VEGETABLE growing project ( now finished ) that provided the impetus to the CABINET and the government bureaucracy to seek assistance from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. Now the FAO have financed the local agriculture research unit at Central Farm with some greenhouse structures for data finding and experimentation.
Coming on board, it is now announced that the TAIWANESE AGRICULTURE MISSION research program in Belize is also financing TEN such greenhouse covered structures for growing vegetables, scattered around the Corozal District, the Orange Walk District and the Cayo District. It will be Xmas 2010 before we get any useful data on the performance.
