POTENTIAL FOR HERBS AND SPICES PRODUCTION IN TRINIDAD & TOBAGO AND METHODS OF THEIR PROPAGATION

The potential for herbs and spices production in Trinidad and Tobago is favourable on account of the climatic and soil conditions. At present there is a flourishing trade in manufactured packaged spices, but due to high cost of production and unavailability of suitable planting material, spice cultivation will be restricted to tumeric, ginger, peppers and now cardamoms. A review of the methods of propagation of a wide range of culinary, medicinal and perfumery herbs and spices is presented. ----- Las posibllidades de produccidn de hierbas y especias en Trinidad y Tobago son favorables, debido a las condiciones del clima y del suelo.
