Banana and Plantain Farmers in Jamaica to Benefit from EU Assistance

Over the next four years, the European Union will be funding the Banana Accompanying Measures (BAM) special assistance programme, which aims to assist banana and plantain farmers, and other sector interests, with enhancing crop production and productivity.

This programme will be implemented over a period of 48 months in the banana growing parishes of St Thomas, St Catherine, Clarendon, St James, Portland and St Mary and forms part of Governments Poverty Eradication Strategy by increasing the ability of small farmers to increase their production and productivity.
