FARMERS in the Western Division who are not involved in the sugar industry will have better access to technical agricultural information following the opening of a new Fiji Crop and Livestock Council office in Lautoka.

The office was opened by Prime Minister Rear Admiral Voreqe Bainimarama who said the government wanted farmers to be successful and to earn a living that could support them and their families.

"The opening of the Fiji Crop and Livestock Council's new offices will significantly enhance the services available to its members," he said.

Rear Admiral Bainimarama said the council raised important issues with government on behalf of its members and helped identify where assistance was needed.

FCLC chairman Simon Cole said the council would strive to cater and provide essential services to about 30,000 farmers from 17 commodity associations.
