West Indian Sea Island Cotton is now available for harvesting at Mount Pleasant Farm, Moncrieffe, St. Philip.

The opportunity, which is being provided by the Barbados Agricultural Management Company (BAMC), is expected to give persons a chance to not only earn cash, but also contribute to the economy.

Cotton pickers are advised that harvesting attire must comprise the following clothing: long sleeves, long pants, headgear (hat, scarf, head tie), and fully enclosed shoes.  They should also have an umbrella and water.

The fields will open from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., but workers may also pick and store at their convenience.  Personnel from the BAMC will collect and weigh cotton at prescribed times.  

For further information, and to sign on for employment, persons may call BAMC’s Area Office at 437-5465 or 433-4157.  COVID-19 protocols will be in full effect on site and at all collection points.
