PLANT FIBRE CROPS FOR ST. VIN-
CENT'S GROWING HANDICRAFT
INDUSTRY.

The making of baskets, bags, mats,
hats etc.. of fibre is becoming an import-
ant industry in St. Vincent. Thishandi-
craft industry if encouraged and devel-
oped will greatly assist in solving many
of our economic problems by providing
considerable useful employment and a
most welcome addition to our export
trade.
For this industry to develop and ex-
pand quickly it is vital that supplies of
the raw materials should be available in
greatly increased quantities.
The main lU res used in local handi-
crafts come from the leaves of the
"Wild" or 'Screw" Pine (Pandanus
sp). and Sisal (Agave sp.). These plants
are easy to establish and require little
cre once planted.
The Pine is the one most widely used.
It is a plant that provides an excellent
windbreak for other crops, it stands up
well to salt sea spray and will be found
to be a most helpful plant for Estates
and farmers in the Windward area speci-
ally. Pine is also a useful anti-eroison
crop and should be planted extensively
throughout the Colony on steep banks
and the side of gutters, ravines and
streams.
The use of sisal fibre for handicrafts
is increasing and if planted closely
enough can be made into a stock proof
fence. Sisal is also an anti-erosion crop
if planted along contour barriers.


All farmers both large and small are
asked to make every effort to grow
these plants wherever suitable. All those
who are interested and who may require
further information and advice should
contact their nearest Agricultural In-
structor or the Department of Agricul-
ture.
Plant Wild Pine and Sisal for the
good of your own farm, and yoe will
also be helping to build a most promis-
ing and useful Handicraft Industry for
the betterment of St. Vincent.
