DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE.

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. This handi-
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 fibres used in local handi-
crafts come from the leaves of the
"Wild" or "Screw" Pine (Pandanus
sp.). arid Sisal (Agave sp.). These plants
are easy to establish and require little
care 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 specially.
Pine is also a useful anti-erosion 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 feune.
Sisal is also an anti-erosion crop if plant-
ed 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 fur-
ther information and advice should con-
tact their nearest Agricultural Instructor
or the Department of Agriculture.
Plant Wild Pine and Sisal for the good
of your own farm, and you will also be
helping to build a most promising and
useful Handicraft Industry for the better-
ment of St. Vincent.
