Carrot Production In The Rupununi Savannas of Guyana
Because of the fertile river sand and the availability of rice-mill ash and cow manure, a very fertile soil can be produced in which to grow carrots. The carrots can then be transported and sold to exporters in Georgetown who will ship it to their markets overseas. Some may even be sold in the local market. The neighboring Brazilian cities of Bom Fim and Normandia are also potential markets, as well as all across the North, South and Central Rupununi. Carrots may not be sold further south of Brazil as Brazilian authorities do not allow agricultural produce from Guyana to pass further than the city of Normandia.
The Land Preparation
Concrete Beds: A long-term investment-An invaluable asset.
The Rupununi Carrots Production Team will invest in concrete beds that run along the length and breadth of the cultivation area. An investment in concrete beds protects from both flooding, water logging and drought.
How concrete beds protect from flooding
Even though the area demarcated for cultivation is elevated and has never experienced flooding in the past, concrete beds raise the planting surface by about two feet, giving ample time for drainage of water in case of excess rainfall.
How concrete beds protect from water logging.
The concrete beds, even though they contain nutrient rich and water permeable soil, will be outfitted with drainage pipes at the base just in case of excessive rainfall. Even though the base of the beds is soil, not concreate, the drainage pipes add an extra level of protection against possible clogging due to excessive rainfall.
How concrete beds protect from drought
Even though the area demarcated for carrot production has never experienced a drought, ample measure is taken to protect from such an occurrence. Irrigation pipes will be run along the top of the beds which can be switched on to provide automated water supply to all areas of beds with the turn of a valve.
The soil will be mixed as follows for the richest combination possible:
30% red river sand.
15% rice mill ash
5% cow manure
Tips For Planting And Growing Carrots
- Carrots grow best in deep, loose soil which retains water well, but at the same time not water-logged.
- Carrots do not grow well in acidic soil.
- During watering, make sure the soil is well-soaked and the water penetrates down to the roots of the carrots.
- In case of the carrot fly pest, use resistant varieties of carrots, such as Flyaway or Resistafly carrots.
- Create drills about half an inch deep in the soil before laying seeds.
- Gently cover the drill with soil after laying seeds.
- Keep soil moist after sowing seeds until germination.
Land must be bought that carries a higher value than what it was paid for, after it is purchased. This is one of the factors that will reduce of the risk of loss for investors in the unlikely event that the business fails.

Why The Business Plan Must Be Surefooted
The business plan must be surefooted and leave no margin for error, since people‘s hard-earned money are at stake. For this reason, every effort will be made to ensure that the business succeeds in making a profit and repays investors as planned. However, unforeseen circumstances, conditions and forces, as well as natural disasters and acts of God may cause even the most fool-proof plan to go awry. That is why investors should bear in mind the possibility of a loss, even though it is extremely unlikely. This brings us to what my lawyers made me put here:
