Jehangir ‘Jango’ Bhadha, associate professor of soil, water, and ecosystem sciences at the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS), recently led a team of faculty during a three-day training program in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines to address the challenges of excess and lack of nutrients used for agricultural production.
The aim of the program was to promote food security and enhance the technical knowledge, skills and practices of local growers, stakeholders, and practitioners. Bhadha says the chance to work with local communities will promote renewable practices and help them better tackle the challenges they face.
“We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to collaborate with local stakeholders in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines to address the critical issue of nutrient management in agriculture,” said Bhadha. “By providing training and sharing expertise, we hope to contribute to global food security and promote a sustainable environment in this region.”Read more: UF/IFAS Scientists Address Food Security in the Caribbean.
