Forty farmers in the Roseau Valley Area have benefited from a donation of tools and equipment from the Japan Caribbean Climate Change Partnership.

The tools and equipment were officially handed over at a ceremony held last week at the Morne Prosper Primary School.

According to Parliamentary Representative for The Roseau Valley Constituency, Honorable Dr. John Colin Mcintyre stated that the equipment totalled to approximately Two Hundred Thousand EC Dollars.

“Equipment in the form of water tanks, soil testing equipment, wood chippers, laptops, tillers, brush cutters, seeds and much more and machine powered mist blowers as well so more and more you are graduating. I just want to share that the project cost about $390K, $200K of which went specially to your tools and equipment; I think that’s significant.”

Dr. Mcintyre went on to urge the recipients to care for the tools and the equipment.

“I want to urge you to really take care of your tools, and your equipment. They are costly, we already know the cost of labour for agriculture, we know the cost of agrochemicals…. I want you to take control of your tools here.”
