When we speak of imports it is important to understand that crops are imported primarily as fresh, however the fresh crop is a primary product. As the primary product or the raw material, that crop it must be understood maybe converted from a raw material to a value-added product. This projec…t seeks to understand and identify those crops that offer the best potential to penetrate the Bahamian market. What we would like to show is the full potential for these crops. Firstly there is the fresh product and secondly the value-added products that may come from the fresh product. Some examples of value-added products from fresh fruit & vegetables are: frozen, preserved/ dried, canned (whole or pieces), juice, paste, puree, marmalade, jams, and jellies. In 2006 the total import value of these 30 crops (as a fresh product) was estimated to be worth B$31,201,006 dollars. By 2007 the import value for these had increased by B$700,126 dollars an increase of 2.2% to B$31,901,132 dollars. The value-added products for the same crops in 2006 was worth B$12,665,199 dollars, by 2007 this value increased by B$1,862,949 dollars or 14.71% to B$14,528,148 dollars. Therefore in 2006 these 30 crops, fresh and value-added products had an estimated import value of B$43,866,205 dollars. The total value in 2007 for these same fresh and value-added products had an estimated value of B$46,429,280 dollars an increase of B$2,563,075 dollars or 5.8%^. This therefore means if the Bahamas were to grow, all, the fresh product for these 30 crops we would stand to earn as much as B$31.5 - B$31.9 million dollars per annum. Another B$12.7 - B$14.5 million dollars could be realized from their value-added products. Therefore between B$43.86 - B$46.43 million dollars could be injected into the Bahamian economy. This earning would translate into a savings on our import bill thus lowering our Food Bill and increasing our foreign exchange reserves. The savings/earning from these crops may lead to investments into the other 78 crops, thus saving or retaining even more of our money. With more money in the economy we would be able to build agricultural industries, to increase employment, increase wealth and decrease dependence on imports. With each passing year all countries not just the Bahamas will experience a growing population, Agricultural Land shrinkage and water shortages. By the year 2050 it is estimated that the world population will increase by three (3) billion people.The Bahamas must begin to produce, now, if we are to have a chance of feeding ourselves or if we simply want to make money. Conditions for Agriculture are ideal in the Bahamas, we have sunshine 365 days a year, we have a relatively small population, we enjoy close to five million visitors per year, we have knowledgeable farmers, and we have knowledgeable buyers who are experts in supplying the demand for this market. Our buyers understand agriculture and know quality. The Bahamas is blessed with more land than Jamaica, and although our land is not as fertile, it's better than Israel. Israel must produce from deserts and pump water from miles below the ground. No such problem in the Bahamas although we lack rivers, we have a relatively high water table. While in the Bahamas we do not have much arable land, we do have some, it is also possible to improve our soils and if that fails we may also look to green houses and hydro phonics. Today's agricultural technology is opening new doors for agricultural production. The time is ripe for growers and buyers to work as partners, growers produce, buyers distribute, the money they earn and save can only benefit the Bahamas. We must cease our dependence on imported food, as the cost of that food will only continue to go up. Of the 30 crops identified sixteen (16) more than half, have a potential to be million dollar industries. Onion, the #1 ranked crop, saw the value of imports increase over half a million dollars from 2006 (B$2,303,714) to 2007 (B$2,852,197). During that period both quantity and value increased, in 2007 we imported 5,262,948 (lbs.) pounds while in 2006 we imported 4,585,969 lbs. The price from 2006 to 2007 also increased by two (2) cents per pound. Irish potatoes, the #2 ranked crop, has a potential to earn $3.4 million dollars annually as a fresh product and up to B$7.0 million dollars as a frozen or prepared product, making it the crop with the greatest potential, over ten million dollars per annum. In 2007, the Bahamas imported almost $4.0 million dollars worth of Lettuce, while in 2006 we imported $3.5 million all in its fresh form. Types of lettuce imported include: iceberg, romaine and head. Tomato, a favourite, was one of a few crops where the import value decreased; this is attributed to the success of tomato production in green houses. In 2006 the value of tomato imports was B$2,962,731 by 2007 it decreased by $598,774 or 20.2% to B$2,365,957. The value of imported by products of tomato increased B$82,059 or 6.1% from B$1,341,295 in 2006 to B$1,423,354 in 2007^. ( Full Answer )
