Maciu Malo
Tuesday, January 29, 2013

THE Agriculture Department has assisted about 132,000 farming households through its cyclone rehabilitation program.

This was confirmed by the department's director extension Uraia Waibuta in Nadi yesterday.

He said the seedling distribution to directed areas was completed while efforts were being directed to those needing more seeds.

"A total of 132,000 farming households were affected by the cyclone and the department has also distributed seedlings to these affected farmers," Mr Waibuta said.

"Actually we have completed the distribution of some of the directed seedling material to all those affected farmers which included kumala cuttings, long beans and french beans, as of last week.

"Also we have slightly changed the way of distribution. We are distributing it not just for those farmers coming to the office but to all farmers who really need seedlings especially where the land have been prepared."
