“In the heart of a seed buried deep so deep, a dear little plant lay fast asleep,” the poem goes, and like a nurturer, a farm worker plants seeds at The UWI’s fields in Orange Grove. Orange Grove is the site of the Agricultural Innovation Park, which is being developed through an agreement between The UWI and the China Agricultural University. One of its purposes is to support the revitalisation of regional agriculture through the use of modern technology, crops and innovative and entrepreneurial practices. “We want the Agricultural Innovation Park to be an extremely modern technical facility,” says Dr Isaac Bekele, Dean of the Faculty of Food and Agriculture.
