St .Vincent and the Grenadines will be shipping out a 40 foot container of dasheen twice per month to the United States of America effective Saturday May 6.
This comes as the Ministry continues its thrust towards developing and accessing new market opportunities for Vincentian produce.
Dasheen is being purchased from May 2 to Friday May 5.
The Communications Unit in the Ministry of Agriculture says the weight requirements range between 1-7 pounds per corm at a price of 60 cents per pound.
Interested farmers are asked to contact the Lauders Buying Depot.
