MORE mechanical harvesters are being imported into the country, says Fiji Sugar Corporation chairman Abdul Khan.

He said the corporation had seen a great improvement in production this season as more farmers hired mechanical harvesters.

"The initiative is going very well and we have seen a great deal of improvement in harvesting," Mr Khan said.

"More people are importing the mechanical harvesters and that will obviously assist in increasing production.

"There is an increase of imports of the machines, as long as people adhere to the importing rules and regulations, will benefit the industry."

Mechanical harvester owner, Narend Prasad of Drasa Sector in Lautoka says the machine produces more than manual harvests.
