CANE farmers registered with the Labasa Cane Producers Association will not receive cane knives and knife files this year, says Labasa Cane Producers Association president Mohammed Rafique. Mr Rafique, who is the new president of the association, said this has been agreed because of increasing presence of cane harvesters in the North. He said about 4000 farmers in the North will not be given the assistance that has been done over the past five years.

“Government is helping out with cane harvesters for farmers in Seaqaqa, Vunivau and other cane farming areas in Labasa,” he said.
