Brazil gave Belize Agriculture Dept. lessons in organic farming.

BRAZILIAN EMBASSY has done some education of our local agriculture people in ORGANIC FARMING

To what extent that technical expertise can be passed on to extension officers and eventually farmers in Belize remains open to question. If past history is any guide, it will be forgotten and never get anywhere. Three farmer groups into organic growing, in the Cayo District have received some passed down lessons and information though. The organic farmers are serious about it. We wait to see if export crops can be made to work for organic farmers.
