HirticultureOn Friday, February17, 2012, the Ministry of Agriculture Central Farm Station held an Open Day to commemorate the transfer of the Horticulture Crop Training and Development Center to the Ministry by the Taiwan Technical Mission.

The project is one of the first to be transfered between the Republic of China Taiwan and the Ministry of Agriculture. The Taiwan Technical Mission will continue to promote the project until August 2012, when the transfer procedure is fully completed.

The Horticulture Crop Training Development Center in Central Farm has about 3 acres with vegetable and fruit cultivation as well as covered structures, demonstration and organic sections. This center has focused on carrying out demonstration trials and training to offer more knowledge and information to technicians, small farmers and farmers groups.

The transfer doesn’t mean that the Taiwan Technical Mission will cease their cooperation but instead will focus on assisting more Belizean.
