“Barbados Society of Technologists in Agriculture Annual Technical Conference 2015”

On February 7th, 2015 at the Barbados Yacht Club, the BSTA hosted its annual technical¬† conference under the theme, “Going forward in agriculture – Innovative “out-of-the-box” solutions”. A total of ten (10) presentations were made on various topics, ranging from the processing of sweet potato into value-added products to the use of “vinasse” as a soil fertilizer and conditioner, among other very interesting topics.

This year’s conference was well attended and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. A tribute was made by the BSTA president, Mrs. Marcia Marville, to the dearly departed Mr. Keith Laurie, whose presence was sorely missed.
