Dominica prepares for mass banana exports

Dominica’s banana sector is getting back on its feet says the Minister for Agriculture, Johnson Drigo. Drigo stated that Government’s rapid response at a time of impeding factors, especially Black Sigatoka, has paid off.

He listed Government’s Black Sigatoka Management Programme which tackled the disease from several angles. “We are very satisfied with the farmers’ response to these efforts and we are seeing improvements across the board.”

He revealed that the production forecast for November 2015 – June 2016 is encouraging. “We anticipate 962 tonnes of bananas and this is very encouraging for the banana sector.”
