This agricultural land use Scheme was announced in the 2005/06 budget, to consist of
§ 300 Arpents of Rose Belle Sugar Estate lands
§ 100 Arpents of MSPA lands, and
§ 100 Arpents of SIT land.
The initial selection of lessees rested with the Agricultural Services of the Ministry of Agriculture; and was later transferred to the FARC.
Monitoring of the project is being done by a Steering Committee chaired by the Director General of FARC.
