Fertiliser alert to farmers

Update: 3:32PM THE Consumer Council has reminded farmers about knowing the impact of pesticides they use on their farms.

At a workshop in Seaqaqa this morning, the council’s northern coordinator, Losana Malani, told farmers that the impact could harm their health and also affect their children.

“When the fertiliser affects children, it will have an impact on the future of the nation,” she said.

“So it’s important that we also think of other methods because research has proved that fertiliser do harm our environment and our health as well.”
