Crops in Valley of Peace, Belize, Destroyed by Herbicide Sprayed on Them
About a million dollars in vegetables have been destroyed in the Valley of Peace area, Cayo District of Belize (Central America). The community is the largest provider of vegetables to two districts, but the farmers have lost their crops due to crop-dusting. Green Tropics, the controversial company which grazed land in the Laboring Creek Jaguar Corridor Wildlife Sanctuary in 2012, is looking like a repeat offender tonight because they are said to be responsible for the herbicide spraying. News Five’s Isani Cayetano reports.
