In a matter of days, a Brazilian company, New Frontier Agriculture Guyana Incorporated will begin cultivating its first crops of soya and corn on a model farm in the country’s intermediate savannahs, GINA said today.
New Frontier Agriculture Guyana Inc, GINA said, successfully undertook a trial of the commodities on 25 acres of land owned by the National Agricultural Research and Extension Institute (NAREI).
GINA said that the company is currently working to develop the approximately 10,000 acres of land in the intermediate savannahs in Ebini in the Berbice River. This farm will be used as a model demonstration station for development of the entire savannahs. Improved pastures for cattle, sheep, goats and horses are also planned, GINA said.
