CARDI Working With Stakeholders to Bolster Agriculture Production in Montserrat
(Caribbean Agricultural Research and Development Institute) CARDI has been working alongside stakeholders in Montserrat to improve the productivity of the island’s agriculture sector.
Over the last year, cuttings for cassava, sweet potato, forages and a variety of clean, quality seeds and other agricultural inputs were supplied to Montserrat from CARDI Antigua and Barbuda.
The CARDI Antigua Unit also provided technical assistance to the Ministry of Agriculture, Lands, Housing & the Environment’s (MoALHE) Backyard Garden Initiative. The programme targets 3 areashoop house rehabilitation, container gardening and open field production. Through technical assistance, CARDI worked with the MoALHE to increase production and supply of quality seedlings and planting materials to local farmers. This program complements the Government’s initiative of boosting local production on the island.
