The history of the farm in Fort George, shows that there were many other vegetables grown and many small fruits were harvested as well.
CBSC and CISA conducted research on farm site and took soil samples to determine which area is most suitable for potato crop production in Fort George and implement the project to bring back potato production in the island.
The experimental plots were approximately 26 sq. meters and 13 sq. meters in size and it had two main crop, potatoes and green onions. The goal of the pilot is to determine a baseline yield with minimum crop management.
The second phase involves the extension of the original experimental plot.
