THERE is a need to strengthen science and technology to improve productivity among farmers, says Agriculture Ministry permanent secretary Ropate Ligairi.

During the handover ceremony this week of 10 tractors from the Indonesian Government, Mr Ligairi said the Fiji Government was pursuing avenues to materialise that intention.

"The Ministry of Agriculture recognises the potential and opportunity that the government of the Republic of Indonesia has been providing to Fiji's agriculture sector for the development of the national economy," he said.

"Over the years we have witnessed direct assistance by the government of the Republic of Indonesia in the areas of rice production, product development and small farm machineries."
