St. Kitts and Nevis saw declining agriculture output in 2018 and officials are blaming it largely on changing weather patterns.Speaking on WINN FM’s Voices program Director of Agriculture, Melvin James described 2018 as an ordinary year for the sector, noting that the major challenge was that of the adverse weather conditions.
He said with the weather pattern becoming less predictable, farmers are unable to have their crops properly synchronized, leading to a decline in production.“A lot of our agriculture is highly dependent on the weather and when we have very favourable weather we get our best results. Nowadays because of what has been blamed on climate change, the weather is less predictable and so we do not always get things properly synchronized.
