Mayaro Greenhouse Growers Association

The Mayaro Greenhouse Growers Association was formed in 2006 by a group of farmers coming together. The association is relatively small comprising of 16 farmers in the Mayaro area. At present the only crop being cultivated is sweetpepper, however, these farmers have improved their market access and profits after engaging in a project hosted by REPSOL. If this networking is maintained, not only farmers, but also agro-processors would benefit by achieving reliable produce of a high standard. The MGGA would like to encourage more farmers to become involved by having training sessions and even incorporating practical sessions in schools.
