Two hydroponics systems are installed at One Mile Agriculture Station in Dominica to encourage the use of Chinese agricultural techniques in the nation.

The systems were installed under the request of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries Blue and Green Economy. With the installations, the training sessions are to be held in the country will avail the updated teachings. The systems will be used as training grounds for farmers and students.

This is because the ministry is seeking to expand the technology on the farms around the island. This will increase vegetable production and support the need to provide consistent and quality supplies.

Importantly, the farmers and students were also trained in the installation of the hydroponics system as this will foster better training sessions, which are further to be held in the nation, Roland Royer, Agriculture minister of Dominica, also paid a visit to the site where installations were going. He went there last week to have a look at ongoing work.
