JMEA urges farmers to embrace technology

President of the Jamaica Manufacturers and Exporters Association (JMEA) Richard Pandohie has urged farmers and the wider agricultural sector to become more engaged in using technology in their farming practices — this he said could alleviate much of the plight farmers now face.

Due to the recent temporary closure of the tourism industry as a result of the strangling impacts of COVID-19, many farmers have been reporting massive losses due to the unavailability of markets which has resulted in large-scale spoilage and the wasting of produce.

In an interview on Monday with the Jamaica Observer Pandohie said that “the low level of technological embracement in the agricultural space has resulted in the limited availability of post-harvest management technology”.
