Honorable Elodio Aragon Jr., the tireless representative of Orange Walk East was busy in his constituency late last week and early this week. Apart from doing his usual rounds in the villages which fall under his responsibility, he has been visiting farmers there as well. The purpose of his visit to farmers is to present them with corn seeds which he managed to secure from the Ministry of Agriculture.

These seeds are quality, high yield and pest resistant which make them quite suitable for farming in these villages. These corn seeds produce a variety of corn which can be replanted and obtain the same yield as the first crop. A pound of these seeds can cost up to $14.00 bcy.

Honorable Aragon recognizes that farmers are the backbone of our rural communities and as such he has identified a number of farmers in the villages of Chan Pine Ridge, Carmelita, Santa Marta, Palmar and Tower Hill who will be the recipients of these corn seeds donation.  A total of 1100 pounds of seeds will be delivered. This will surely go a long way in ensuring that these farmers and their families supplement their income when these seeds yield their crop. Hon. Aragon is always looking for creative ways to take care and empower his constituents. Kudos to Honorable Elodio Aragon, keep up the great work you are doing.
