Farmers residing in Ellington, Rarapatu, Volivoli, Naria and Elikini road in Rakiraki were provided with an opportunity to raise their concerns first hand to the Minister for Agriculture and Waterways, Dr Mahendra Reddy as he toured the Western Division yesterday.

Minister Reddy also handed over a boat and an outboard engine to support the youths of Nukubati Youth Club and another outboard engine to Hemant Kumar of Rarapatu to support his fishing venture.

“We met with the farmers in Rakiraki to promote squash, cassava and livestock farming in order for them to transition into commercial farming big time,” Minister Reddy said.

“We showed them the returns of this and how this can really bump up their farm and household income as well as the support provided by my ministry.”
