Mexico to Assist 13 Caribbean Countries with In-Vitro Cloning of Tropical Plants

10896115wSAN JUAN – The Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture, or IICA, announced on Monday an agreement under which Mexico will assist 13 Caribbean countries with in-vitro cloning of tropical plants.

Technical personnel working in those 13 countries have been provided with new tools for the activity, according to a statement from IICA’s Caribbean headquarters in Trinidad.

Based on the expertise they have just acquired, the participants are expected to prepare a protocol on in-vitro cloning for use in their respective countries.

Parameters established by the Scientific Research Center of Yucatan, known as CICY, the facilitator of the training event, will be used to develop the protocol.

The initiative forms part of a capacity building program for the development of agriculture in Central America and the Caribbean, which involves IICA and Mexico’s Secretariat of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food.

The course, led by CICY specialists with support from the Faculty of Food and Agriculture of the University of West Indies, was held in Trinidad and Tobago in mid-June.

The countries taking part in the initiative are Antigua and Barbuda, Grenada, Jamaica, St. Lucia, St. Kitts and Nevis, Bahamas, Guyana, Suriname, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Belize, Barbados, Dominica, and Trinidad and Tobago.
