Salaseini Moceiwai
Friday, August 01, 2014

THE second day of the Northern Agriculture show in Labasa hosted about 5000 people to a wide range of agricultural display and services yesterday.

Students, business people, stakeholders, farmers, villagers and government officials converged on Subrail Park to be part of the annual event.

Principal agricultural officer Northern John Cox said people from various walks of life continued to throng the park to take advantage of the services, display and activities there.

"The turnout has been good so far and these are people from all over Vanua Levu," he said.

"The farmers have been sheltered in a spacious marquee where they have been displaying and also selling their produce from.

"Today (Friday), we expect more than 10,000 people here.

"The show is organised well and the participation and support from the various sections of the agriculture sector has been very overwhelming."

Mr Cox added the show was also an opportunity for people, especially the farmers to earn high income from selling their farm produce.

"Products and farm produce sold at the show are affordable and of high quality."
