    I am a Jamaican ,and our rice farming skills was long ago destroyed by the USA forced implemented programs.
    Who could i get in touch with in cuba to know more about their rice planting program.
    Rice is great for our local farmers, the husk is good for chicken feed and pig feed , which stops our dependency on high price imported chicken and pig feed from the USA.
    Thanks
    Best Regards
