Others from third right are Owner and President of Essential Energy Solutions, Dan Stachofsky, Organic Agriculture Consultant with Essential Energy, Markus Braun, and Principal Research Director in the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries, Dr. Lisa Myers Morgan. Essential Energy Solutions, through its trade name, Geofield Systems, is seeking to collaborate with Jamaica to use technology that neutralizes the effects of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) in the environment, which stunts the growth of crops. Geofield’s pioneering technology will therefore boost crop production by eliminating EMR.
Welcome to the official website of the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries.
The Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries (MICAF) has been charged with the responsibility of driving the integration of the production of primary agricultural produce along all the stages of the supply chain through to value added and facilitating full commercialization of outputs of the agriculture, manufacturing, and service sectors.
We have, therefore, placed much energy and enthusiasm into the development of this website to provide timely information on the Ministry, our agencies and programmes.
