Belize observes Guatemalan tomato crop destroyed by cold plague in February.


Dead plants dominate the photos of the Guatemalan newspapers as the tomato crop suffers from excessive cold weather. and the plague of paratriuza Over 200,000 manzanas ( about 2 1/2 acres to a manzana ) Guatemala has most of the MAYAN KINGDOMS under their modern political boundaries. About 20 different languages exist still today, under such ancient Mayan Kingdoms. Belize has two Mayan language groupings and our first Mayan King in 1100 years ( Prime Minister, Dean Barrow ) now governs 26 Feudal Mayan City States of former ancient times, during the second known thousand year civilization ending around 750 to 900 A.D., believe to be from a three hundred year drought, in the modern country of Belize, on the Eastern border with the 22 Mayan language groupings of Guatemala. There are around 17 million Maya in the Mayan Kingdoms today and millions of mestizos.
In Belize we do not yet grow enough tomatoes to export to Guatemala, to assist them with their tomato shortfalls, but with donations from the United Nations FAO and the EU with GRANTS to assist in vegetable research in greenhouse growing in the lower tropical lands of Belize on the Caribbean Sea, located to the East of Guatemala, North of Honduras and South of Mexico, such research experiments are now ongoing and sure to make a difference in the next dozen years.
The worst zones hit in our neighbor Mayan Kingdoms were Jutiapa, Jalapa, Chiquimula and San Antonio la Paz, El Progreso.
