Pests and soil health in DR

Is anyone working in DR or would know about pests in the soil there? I have heard that there is a major issue with cutworms and tomato worms. Can anyone confirm this? Or is there something else affecting it?

Also, doe anyone know if you find good garden soil in DR especially in Santo Domingo?

Thanks and have a Merry Christmas.

Hi David! I hope you are doing well. I will be in the DR in January (and in /around Santo Domingo). I will do some investigating on your question as it is something I need to know as well.

Merry Christmas

Brad-

Thanks for the response. I hope all is well with the family.

Sure that would be great to do some recon on the subject. Looking forward to hearing from you what you find out.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
David

Hey Brad! Have you been and gone already?? Maybe I need to keep up on my ECHO community notes more frequently!

David, we have African redworms if you have a decent food source and conditions for them to convert kitchen waste, paper, cardboard and/or manure into garden soil.

I’m thinking of writing a brochure on “Worms Shred My Sensitive Documents.”
