The agriculture minister is reporting that the sector has grown by 6.5 per cent for the first quarter of this year.
Speaking at the recent annual general meeting of the Jamaica Agricultural Society, Roger Clarke said the growth was driven mainly by the domestic food crop sector.
However, he says the sector has the potential and capacity to contribute even more, and is urging small farmers to grow crops in which they have a competitive advantage and there are clear markets.
Clarke says the ministry has embarked on the development of new industries such as ginger and so far the there’s been good news.
