Replanting begins

ABOUT a million young coconut plants are to be planted and supplied by next year as part of a replanting program headed by the Department of Agriculture.

Principal North agriculture officer John Cox said nurseries at agriculture stations around the division had sufficient supply to meet the demand.

"We continue to plant coconuts in our nurseries and our target is to achieve a million trees by next year," Mr Cox said.

"So far the program has been good and people continue to order their plants from our nurseries and we keep planting the trees as we work towards our target.

"It's a challenge but we have kept our eyes focussed on the end result of our replanting program and our target as well."

Mr Cox said the young plants were also bought by villagers for replanting programs in their own districts.
