THE country's only chemical-free export crop treatment plant has extended its scope to also include disaster rehabilitation.

Nature's Way Cooperative CEO Michael Brown said because of climate change and the impact of natural disasters on the crop export business, the Nadi based co-op had developed a disaster preparedness and rehabilitation committee.

"Nature's Way and its partners are involved in applied research activities to provide farmers with more options on how they can mitigate against natural disasters," he said.

Committee chairman Tim Casey acknowledged the government and support partners for their contribution to the quick recovery of produce farmers after last year's flood and huricane.
