Tradition vs Innovation; Caribbean Agriculture / Published November 8, 2016 by Mikhail Amsterdam

Tradition vs Innovation; Caribbean Agriculture

“Will small and medium-sized enterprises (SME’s) be able to compete?” The increasing demand for Caribbean products has led to innovative approaches in resolving agricultural issues in the region. Guyana, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago are the leading producers and exporters, and while it is important to note that they lead the region in these areas, technological development has yet to reach the region’s small and sedium-sized snterprises (SMEs) at an affordable cost.
