Soil mapping project.
Following discussions held between a Moroccan agricultural technical team and the ministry of agriculture and fisheries, a cooperation agreement was signed for the implementation of the soil fertility mapping project in Dominica., reports CBN4News.News (Feb. 16, 2015), The project consists of eight work-packages and includes technical and human capacity building within the ministry of agriculture as it relates to crop nutrients management. Farmers and extension agents will be able to address the challenges associated with soil fertility, namely the use and management of fertilizers for sustainable crop production. Considered one of the significant projects undertaken in Dominica by the Moroccan Agency for International Cooperation (AMCI) and with the technical and scientific input of Morocco's National Institute for Agronomic Research (INRA), this agreement reinforces the south-south partnership between Morocco and Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), particularly, St Kitts and Nevis, Antigua, St Lucia, Grenada, and Dominica.
