The International Market for Dasheen has expanded for St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
According to a release from the Agriculture Ministry, an opportunity exists for the supply of an additional four 40 foot containers per week.
To meet this demand, an additional 300 acres of Dasheen is required to be established over the next year. This is equivalent to the establishment of 25 acres per month.
To facilitate the process between farmers and marketers, the Ministry of Agriculture Forestry Fisheries and Rural Transformation is inviting persons interested in planting Dasheen to register with the Ministry at telephone number: 433-0827.
