At a recent workshop hosted by the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture, National Agricultural and Research Extension Institute (NAREI) Chief Executive Officer dr Oudho Homenauth talked on the elimination of the carambola fruit fly. Dr Homenauth is of the view that there is a need for collaboration to effectively address the issue.
 
“It is recognised that no one country in the region can seriously manage the pest problem. We all have to work together. So, it is imperative that our efforts be combined; and the three countries –that is Guyana, Suriname and Brazil– have agreed to work together to have a unified approach to make a difference.”
 
The NAREI CEO said that as Guyana continued to expand its non-traditional agricultural sector, systems needed to be in place to protect crops.
 
According to theworldnews.net¸ this was seconded by Permanent Secretary in the Agriculture Ministry, Delma Nedd, who noted the effects of the carambola fruit fly on Guyana’s agricultural development. She said studies show the fly was responsible for as much as 50 percent yield loss of the carambola crop.
