Plant chemicals to assist Cayman’s crops

One regional visitor at the Caribbean Week of Agriculture said he is in Cayman working with farmers to ensure best practice of chemical use on plants.

Mr. Winston Scott from Ag-Chem Plant Limited in Jamaica said he is working through the Department of Agriculture to ensure fungicides, herbicides and insecticides are safe for human consumption and that farmers are properly instructed on getting the best results from the chemicals.

The plant chemical expert said despite the similarity in climatic zones between the two countries, collaborating with Cayman’s farmers ensures proper chemical application.

“Even though it’s tested in Jamaica we still come here and we may set up a demonstration plot working with the farmers in the normal farming environments that the farmers are operating in to demonstrate the product use and application,” Mr. Scott said.

He said the products are tried and tested under the standards of the World Health Organisation (WHO).
