In studies in Cascade, Hanover, and Sawyers, Trelawny, both in Jamaica, it was found that 52 and 44 percent of farm land, respectively, was unused (Meikle, 1992). 0 acres in size and so unused land takes on even greater importance. There are several factors that could explain this pattern of high unused land on small farms. One explanation is that typically some of the land is classified as being rested, that is laying in fallow.

It is often construed simply in terms of availability and complacency exists because again with the exception of Haiti, the dramatic and sensationalized incidence of hunger often seen in parts of the developing world is absent (Beckford, 2012). However, it is now acknowledged that the region faces urgent and significant food security challenges. CARICOM has been experiencing declining agricultural productivity, decreasing earnings from traditional export crops, a high and growing dependence on imported food, increasing levels of poverty, and increases in diet-related diseases like diabetes, hypertension, and obesity (Caribbean Food and Nutrition Institute/FAO, 2007).

The region is now very heavily dependent on food imports to meet its food needs (Beckford and Bailey, 2009). 553 billion in 1995 (CFNI/FAO, 2007). 64 billion worth of food, which was half the country’s total import bill (Beckford and Bailey, 2009). The situation is similar in many other CARICOM states and the developing world, where markets have been opened up through trade liberalization (Short, 2000; Spitz, 2002; Walelign, 2002). We argue that this dependence on food imports constitutes a major threat to Caribbean food security.
