Agriculture Ministry to Provide Assistance to Dalo Farmers
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.”
He said to improve the productivity, the Ministry will develop clusters and provide a one-off assistance by clearing the land for the farmers, provide material and training.
Reddy said there are many successful cases of this model.
