CARDI to host agriculture training seminar Wednesday

In an effort to overcome some of the challenges faced by protected agricultural or green house agriculture system, the Caribbean Agricultural Research and Development Institute (CARDI) have organized a training seminar to introduce techniques to manage soil bone pests and diseases.

The programme starts on Wednesday and will be held at the Public Service Union on Valley Road in Roseau, from 9 am to 3 pm.

It comes in collaboration with the Florida Association of Volunteer Action in the Caribbean and the Americas (FAVACA), the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA), Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MOAF), and the National Association for Youths in Agriculture (NAYA).

Outside of pest control, the training programme will also look to pioneer techniques on how to choose an alternative to soil in greenhouse production, and examine plant nutrition and water management.

It will consist of a morning classroom session and an afternoon practical session and will be facilitated by Dr. Moore from the University of Florida.

The training continues on Thursday in Portsmouth at the Portsmouth Secondary School
