Agriculture is not dying at all – Drigo

Drigo insists there is money to be made from the agricultural sector
Drigo insists there is money to be made from the agricultural sector

Agriculture Minister Johnson Drigo is of the view that agriculture sector in Dominica is very much alive and there is money to be made from it.

He made that statement during Focus on Government and Development programme recently.

According to him, agriculture plays a significant role in the growth and development of Dominica.

“Agriculture is not dying at all, agriculture is alive and there is money to be made in agriculture, there is money to be made in vegetables, there is money to be made in peppers, there is money to be made in cucumbers,” he said. “We are unable to sustain the cucumber markets that we have out there.”

Drigo encourages young farmers to go into crops like cucumbers if they wish to make money for the Independence season.

“Cucumbers need six weeks to bear, if you go into cucumbers right now with the rain that we have at that time, your cucumbers will flourish and with all the volume of people that will be in Dominica during the Independence season, you will make money,” Drigo stated. “Every supermarket has a beautiful shelf just for agricultural produce.

He went on to say that supermarkets across the island are purchasing agricultural products every week.

Meantime; Drigo argued that there are persons who have decided that their job is to continue to cry down the industry, spending time every week on radio programmes crying down the agriculture industry.

“While they are doing that farmers continue to export, the market continue to explode, the Roseau market is still the most beautiful fresh produce market in the entire Caribbean,” he stated. “It’s the only island you will go into the market and everything that you see that is of the agricultural structure is from the island itself.”

      That sounds like the thoughts of partisan politics of a false and ill informed Preacher. The higher the monkey climbs the higher it exposes its stupidity and Assets. I challenged you to go to Castle Bruce, Drigo`s home village, the worse agricultural deterioration ever. Once a thriving agricultural, fishing and cultural villages with intellectual icons has deteriorated under the leadership of this inept PM Skerrit. It is a damn shame and disgrace. So, where the hell you are asking Mr. Minister to keep going, a journey of denial, stupidity going to hell. You people are in denial. Drigo has no where to go but to Get Out of this Corrupt Labour Party Clang.

    Mr. Dry-go, I don’t know on which bed you sleep, or what drink you had, or which p#$$y you had for lunch, but your statement needs to be retracted, since the boat that the Government has bought or leased or stolen has never left port yet. The plane that was supposed to fly from Florida to Dominica has not commenced yet. The Roseau Market is the same for 40 years, except some aged faces has disappeared after getting all the heat from the sun. The outskirts of the market still collect garbage and stink. MB not there anymore but others are using there as their rest room.
    come on Mr. Dry-go, it has to take deaf or illiterate people to believe what you are saying but I know even those will have problem with your statement. Its either you people do those things on purpose or you are just dumb.
    Dominica deserves way better than this and this is going to STOP!

    He knew he was referring to the labor supporters who are not farmers but had free access to the assistance program and was taking advantage of it. He knew that there were persons who did not understand the importance of watering a plant much less to clean around a dasheen shoot in order to propagate the crop but had full access to the money being donated, loaned and given.
    Dry-go was right when he said he was going to straighten these people because he had the first hand information. but now Mr. Dry-go you are incorrect in say that Agriculture is not dying. Show me was had been done Geest and Tropical and other shippers who were once accepting tons of shipment of agricultural products across international waters. I think something is drastically wrong with some persons understanding and assessment of GDP, per-capita, demand, supply, equilibrium, import, export, surplus, deficit and all of the other economical terms that explains the word economics.

    September 20, 2016

    I saw this news cast yesterday, and I purposely waited for DNO to strike it out the news queue so that I will not comment. If Agriculture wasn’t a government’s thing, then strike out the Ministry of Agriculture and put in the Ministry of breaking grounds, or Ministry of the Sale of Passports, or the Ministry of the Importation of Chinese.
    It is obvious that the ministers are not farmers, or their parents did not come up under the support of the Agriculture industry. Government has all the part to play in the uplifting of Agriculture by putting things in place to assist and encourage farmers in the industry. The Labor party has its supporters and to tell you the truth, a construction worker can buy a vehicle under the name of agriculture to help him in construction and has not planted a single fig tree.
    When Dry-go came on public media and said that he was going to clamp down on farmers who use the government assistance wrongly, he knew what he was talking about.

    There are Lies, Damned Lies and then there are Statistics..Revenue from Agriculture has declined dramatically over the last ten years in Dominica..that is common knowledge in DA now.

    Drigo, please continue to encourage the farmers but recognize that there is a problem with the Industry..That’s the only way things will begin to pick up..Drigo and Ian Douglas seem to be living in a fool’s paradise.

    Reading the comments of bloggers ,who identify agriculture as a Government activity instead of private sector activity,then yes agriculture will be seems people believe that agriculture is the business of minister Drygo.agriculture was at highest level of production,when the farmers organization Dbga was in control of the banana long as agriculture continues to be seen as Government industry and not the industry of the farmers production and output will remain depressed.

    • Lang Mama
      September 20, 2016

      Joe DBGA was dissolved by the government. I dont our people and their foolish loyalty to political parties. It is ni secrete that the DLP government under Roosevelt Skerrit did not consider agriculture a viable industry. Ivor Nassief said to us it is a third world industry.
      This government has not created a secure platform for the people to make agriculture their business. Thd government would prefer play politics with DAPEX yet the farmers continue to languish. The government allowed all our feeder roads to decapitate and we expect farmers to access their farm?
      Joe stop being a party idiot and call it as it is. When Labor party were publically denouncing agriculture people like you were openly support those statements.

    • mr sir
      September 20, 2016

      U sound really crazy saying such a thing. This is why we will continue to fail. Agriculture is not only bananas. And it is surely not solely a private sector industry. The government is the one which should take the mantle on building and growing the industry. It is the industry not just bananas. Government has to invest in the research, marketing, subsidization and various other aspects of the industry. Many think that the bigger countries only developed because of their exploitation and robbing of the africas. But they all developed from heavy investments in agriculture and research in that particular field. Governments provide various incentives and all look towards food security through investment in agriculture. Both crop and livestock

      You are the one saying that agriculture is a government business.I’m sure you will agree that in all countries over the world governments play their part in this vital sector in numerous ways.This does not make it a government business.Presidents and Prime Ministers lead trade missions to go help their farmers access export markets.On the home front though these governments ensure that the farmers have as much assistance as they require to keep agricultural production adequate for local and export markets.These means doing whatever is neede.Helping farmers organize,subsidizing the industry,making finance available at concessionary terms,providing seed materials and other inputs,assisting with transportation,extension services,research,etc are done by governments all over the world to assist in making agriculture successful.Stop trying to be a smarty pants.

    Drigo you’re right. Agriculture is (state of being) not dying (a transitioning stage of being), but is already dead (end of being). As of this writing, I have family with large amount of crop just wasting by the road with no market to sell to. The DLP administration has chosen to ignore the life blood of Dominica, for a quick fix called CBI/ECP.

    poor you Johno, when one grew up in poverty and have know knowledge of agricultural production and marketing one has to talk such nonsense; the farmer need a steady income and none of the crops you are talking about cannot provide the farmer with that income, because sometimes the market is up, and sometimes it is down.

    I just want to say very little to Drigo. Mr Drigo AGRICULTURE is not dying you are right . AGRICULTURE is DEAD. The few farmers we have planting lettuce and other fruits and vegetable are for self sustenance. You can not even go to the supper markets and get provisions etc. When we talk about AGRICULTURE we mean being available on a large scale for local consumption and for export DRIGO. The end . I am lost for words to describe Drigo still trying to defend that fact that his government killed AGRICULTURE

  28. Doctor of corruption
    September 19, 2016

    Mr. Drigo, you need to stop spreading propaganda because you are not a doctor and therefore you don’t when something is dead or dying. I prefer to take the advise of Doctor Roosevelt Skerrit instead because as a doctor, he knows when something is dead, dying, or hopeless.

    Based on speeches given by Dr. Skerrit in recent times along with steps he has taken, as well as trips, one would have to be really blind to not see the good doctor has no interest in agriculture and he, more than anyone, his body language clearly suggests that agriculture is DEAD! Example:

    Notice his hectic trip has nothing to do with agriculture or trying to sell agricultural produce to his new friends. It’s all about selling citizenship. “As the Minister for Finance, I understand and appreciate the importance of this programme to the country and its wellbeing….”

  29. September 19, 2016

    Sorry Mr. Drigo but it seems that you are the only one clapping and you are clapping for yourself.

  30. September 19, 2016

    Sir you’re have some point on what you’re saying, framers might be making a little money locally but let’s look at the bigger picture we need to export. Dominica is a very small population so you’re really can’t make big money selling locally. So I would say it’s half dead. Also please fix the Fram roads so young people can be encouraged to plant.

  31. Skerritr Agent
    September 19, 2016

    Mr. Drigo I agree with you that agriculture is not dying at all, because it is DEAD and has been dead for 10 years now. Just ask the $1 minister.

    “Cucumbers need six weeks to bear, if you go into cucumbers right now with the rain that we have at that time, your cucumbers will flourish and with all the volume of people that will be in Dominica during the Independence season, you will make money,” Drigo stated. “Every supermarket has a beautiful shelf just for agricultural produce.

    Mr. Drigo, that might be true for now and sounds like good advise to a handful of individuals but not to too many farmers. This is called “Insecure investment” or take a chance investment because there is no secured market. Imagine if 100 farmers would take this advise and go invest in “the money to be made” crops Drigo spoke about. Imagine 100 farmers planting with independence in mind and everybody has the same thing and you are forced to give your away? What if another storm and WCMF is…

    September 19, 2016

    “Drigo argued that there are persons who have decided that their job is to continue to cry down the industry, spending time every week on radio programmes crying down the agriculture industry.” But by the way Drigo, you forgot to encourage us to plant bananas man?

    But who are the persons that saying that Mr. Drigo? Are you referring to Ivore Nassief who said on Q95 last week that agriculture is dead or words to that effect?

    What’s wrong in saying Jack is dead when all signs are suggesting he is dead? If according to you agriculture is not dead and there is money to be made, why the government not giving children scholarships and have the PM or acting PM challenge them to defend agriculture, just as they were challenged to defend the sale of our passports? If it is not dead then why is Skerrit not booking a hectic schedule to go look for some markets in Europe and around the world, just as he is extremely BUSY looking for market for the sale of our passports?

    September 19, 2016

    Are you for real? Have you not seen the imported carrots, grapes, apples at the Roseau market?

    The Div. of Agriculture distributed banana plants to farmers, where is the market for plantain & bananas? There are so many plantains in the market now that farmers are literally ‘giving’ them away.

    “Every supermarket has a beautiful shelf just for agricultural produce” Yes, but how much of it is imported and why are they given permits to import items that we produce here such as radish, cauliflower, broccoli, butternut squash, romaine lettuce, celery, bell peppers, and purple cabbage just to point out a few.

    If you can not take constructive criticism and sound ideas from the people whom you state ‘are on radio programmes crying down the agriculture industry, then you are not open minded enough.

    The farmers are assiduously planting and continue struggling to get to their farms. Pay attention to the deplorable condition of the feeder roads and let us keep…

    Backyard gardening will help reduce the import bill and reduce our reliance on canned and frozen vegetables. People from the Diaspora if you are sending home barrels for the Independence and Christmas season, go to WalMart and Home Depot and purchase some end of summer packets of vegetable seeds and send home to your loved ones. They can grow some herbs and vegetables. We can do this Dominicans. It doesn’t take much to grow these healthy foods.

    PS. Drigo, there is a glut of eggs on the market in Dominica today, a result of your policy. The price drop to E.C.$.6.50/doz. sold direct from the farmer to the customer. That is good for the customer but not so good for the farmer but In New York last week the retail price, bought from the store for medium size eggs ranged from U.S.$.1.49 (E.C.$.4.03) to max. U.S.$.2.09 (E.C.$.5.66) per dozen, all packed and not loose. Go and export your eggs mr. Drigo if you can, good luck.

    Off Course there is money to be made, but the government and particularly you mr. drigo have not done much for agriculture as a national interest. For the past 2 years everyone has been raving about coconut oil, what has the government done to ensure a steady supply of coconuts for agro processors to capitalize, same for peppers, pepper sauce producers have to import pepper mash, same for for a whole list of other products that we can capitalize on like cocoa. What steps has the ministry taken? so much state land going to WASTE. How had the Ministry of Agriculture addressed these issues or even sought to discuss adding value to agricultural produce through meetings with agro processors/ manufacturers? The answer is they HAVEN’T. Instead they want to focus on basic growing of crops and bringing them in their raw state to market. Adding value to these frops like turning dasheen into dasheen flower/ dahseen chips/ dasheen juice etc so we can ask a higher price for the value added is not.

    Oh Drigo, of course agriculture not dyeing, it is dead already! All we have eft is subsistence farming. What are you going to export Drigo? Tomatoes on Roseau market cost E.C.$.7.00 per pound if you can find them but Safe-a-Lot in the U.S.A> selling vine ripe tomatoes for U.S.$059 a pound, that is E.C.C.1.60 per pound. No wonder their store in Roseau can import produce from the U.S.A. and still make a profit compared with our own agriculture produce. You living an a fool’s paradise Drigo.

    Reading the above presentation i agree with one thing. “Agri is not dying”. If you dig a hole and bury a man, he cannot still be dying. If he was then no matter how close he is to death then you commit murder if he is buried alive. Hence it may be safe to say the dlp murdered the agri industry. Mr. Drigo please use statistics from the ministry of agriculture and statstics division to validate your claim. The days of listening to words from government withouts the official stats is long gone. If you cannot do that then what you stated above is useless information.

    When you enter the junction to Pte. Soufriere, stop and ask where are the many farmers and traders who assembled there to do business. Also Castle Bruce had three co-operatives and a thriving fishing business, a sewing business and many local NGO`s, hucksters etc creating employment and foreign exchange.
    All of this is dead and I challenge you to think otherwise. Go ask stalwarts like Johnathan St. Jean, Eloi and Mark Sylvestre,, Francis Joseph, Papie, with his local supermarket and the many local farmers and traders.
    Castle Bruce is now a ghost town with the wind of corruption blowing daily from the corrupt PM`s office and deceitful Labour Party you have made yourself part of. It is a shame and disgust to have you representing us, the decent man we know you are. Wrong company Jono, wrong…
