Agriculture on St Helena needs to go hi-tech, says report

New technology and innovation are needed to meet St Helena’s demand for fresh food, says the Growing Forward paper on farming.

And it could take the back-breaking pain out of food production, it says – making the job more attractive to newcomers.

Incentives could be offered to increase the amount of crops being grown under cover in polytunnels, and through hydroponic methods – without soil, which is very poor on St Helena.

Computers could be used to improve planning and record keeping, which could boost crops and quality.

The paper says growers need to be kept informed about new techniques.
