$2m market to help farmers

A PROPOSED $2million market and storage facility in Keyasi will help farmers save money, says Nadroga provincial administrator Peni Naqasenivanua.

He said apart from the challenges posed by road conditions, farmers in Navosa found it expensive to transport produce to the Sigatoka market.

"This set-up has been in the plans for a while as we try to look for ways to help farmers earn more and spend less," said Mr Naqasenivanua.

"The idea here is to have a central place for storage or trade where farmers from the interior can bring their produce and sell to middlemen who take it down to Sigatoka or other markets.

"With Keyasi being in the centre, middlemen from either Ba, Nadi or Sigatoka can travel there to buy their stock."
