A legacy of Productivity

What we have accomplished over the years

The history of the Barbados Agricultural Society dates back to the 19th century,1845 to be exact. At that time Barbados was primarily an agrarian economy and a jewel in the British crown. Even back then it was recognised that farmers were stronger together and empowered by their critical role in producing food for the island and crops for export. 

Our Partner

The Barbados Agricultural Society almost on a daily basis maintains some form of relationship with the various industries and sectors that make our economy. The society works closely with these sectors in a continuous effort to help develop and protect our agricultural industry. The linkages often allow the relevant stakeholders to collectively develop strategies and solutions to the various issues that affect us at any given point in time.

Best Practices in Green Monkey Deterrence:A Manual for Farmers in Barbados

The issue of the introduced green monkey in Barbados is a frequent topic of discussion nationally. While the green monkey population must be controlled to ensure that Barbados has a thriving agricultural sector, the monkey is also an interesting component of Barbados’ rather depleted biodiversity and is a tourist attraction.
