Haiti - Agriculture : Campaign against the Crypticerya genistae
The Ministry of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Rural Development (MARDNR) has officially launched the campaign against the crypticerya genistae, especially in the municipalities of Capotille, Ouanaminthe, Fort Liberté and Les Perches.

This control program which aims to reduce the level of infestation of 18,000 hectares of abandoned farmland by farmers in the department of North East, is funded by the World Bank to the tune of U.S. $ 32.610 dollars.

Fresnel Dorcin, the Secretary of State for Plant Production, accompanied by Guyto Laurore, Director of Plant Protection, have pledged their support to farmers and called on local authorities to work together to carry out this program.

It should be noted that the Crypticerya genistae was observed in Capotille on the Haitian-Dominican border in the last quarter of 2011 on peanuts (its main host), but also on the pois congo, cassava, chilli and several pasture or forest species.

The Ministry of Agriculture in its concern to encourage national production, expressed motivation to fight against this insect and promote recovery of these crops in this department.
