Seeds for collection

Maciu Malo
Thursday, February 28, 2013

WEST farmers have been urged to visit the nearest agriculture office to order new seeds.

The advice from Agriculture Department's extension officer Uraia Waibuta follows the damage to crops caused by flooding and the recent heavy downpour.

Most farmers still recovering from Tropical Cyclone Evan have been hit again, claiming their seeds, vegetable and root crop farms were destroyed by flooding.

Mr Waibuta said the department's rehabilitation program was in place and farmers who needed more seeds should come and see them.

"We are in the middle of our rehabilitation program and we still have seeds in our offices in the west," he said.

"We urge farmers to visit any agricultural office and order their seeds or inform our officers of any problem they are facing."
