Although the local production of dalo had declined over the past five years, the Ministry for Agriculture is working towards reviving this sector.

Minister of Agriculture Mahendra Reddy said: “It has gone down. There are several reasons for it. Effect of Winston, destroyed a lot of farm, increase in kava price. Yaqona has taken over some land that was used for dalo production.”
