COMMERCIAL AGRICULTURE WAY FORWARD: MINISTER REDDY

The Minister for Agriculture Honourable Dr Mahendra Reddy conducted a special visit to Tuvurara in Cakaudrove to promote commercial agriculture to farmers in the province.

While delivering his keynote address, Dr Reddy said there were a lot of potential to create and accommodate more agricultural entrepreneurs in the country.

“We need to bring our natural capital into the production process as no land will provide returns without us utilising it. We are not doing justice to the country by not fully utilising the (agricultural) land into its full capacity,” he said.

He said the Ministry would assist individuals who wish to farm on a large scale.

More than 100 farmers from as far as Natewa and Loa were present at the event.
