Local Organic Compost made available to TDC 

The Vegetable Fruit Upland Crop Quality and Safety Improvement Project (VFUCQSIP), is working through the Federal Ministry of Agriculture to supply locally-made Compost (decayed organic material used as a plant fertilizer) to farmers in St. Kitts and Nevis. 

 

The Compost is made up of grass clippings, leaves, green items and organic urea, as well as local cow manure sourced from Bayford’s Livestock Centre for Excellence. 

 

The VONNEWSLINE spoke with Project Manager – Mr. Augustine Nwosu who explained how the product is to be used:
