RICE farmers no longer need to worry about crop storage at their irrigation farms in Macuata.

Construction for a new storage house at the irrigation farm in Dreketi has started.

Fiji Rice Ltd North manager Ashrit Pratap said the storage house would be the first for farmers in the area.

“In the past, they have always stored their own rice paddy and this became a challenge for many farmers especially during rainy days,” he said.
