Sorghum Production Will Reduce Import Bill – Minister Clarke(x)

Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries, Hon. Roger Clarke, says the production of sorghum in Jamaica augurs well for the future of the agriculture industry.

He said that large scale cultivation of the crop will boost the livestock industry and also assist in reducing the sector’s almost $2 billion per year import bill.
“We want to see how much of a dent we can make into the importation of animal feeds and other inputs into the agricultural sector; anything that we can do to save foreign exchange is something that is good for the country,” he stated.
