Agricultural Diversification for St. Vincent & the Grenadines

Minister of Agriculture, Saboto Caesar said the Ministry of Agriculture is now embarking on an Agricultural Diversification program at the Orange Hill Tissue Culture Lab.

The program is working on the production of decorative plants, in addition to Banana and Root Crops. This is to compliment the twenty-point 100-day Agricultural plan, which was launched in April and culminated in July.

The agricultural minister said this would result in a decrease in the importation of decorative flowers into the country.
