Yesterday afternoon, ECTAD/CaFAN held a meeting with farmers in the Vermont area of Saint Vincent. Nearly fifty participants attended the session, in which production and ECTAD's production planning programme were the centre focus.
We have six additional regional workshops being held throughout the island, scheduled for the first two weeks of January. The Production Planning Program will, again, be discussed, as it applies to each area. Our focus crops include: Dasheen, Sweet Potato, Eddoes, Casava, Plantain, Ginger and Yam.
