The Bua province is currently the country’s largest supplier of dalo for export.
Acting Senior Agriculture Officer Bua, Inise Sakoro says for the first quarter of this year, Bua managed to export 140 tonnes of the tausala species.
In the second quarter, they only managed to export 37 tonnes of tausala due to the inconsistency of the market, where some exporters pulled out.
However, Sakoro says for the third quarter, they are noting a slight increase in export as some exporters have returned to buy our tausala.
She adds most farmers are unhappy with the current dalo price
“Right now the dalo prices is not very attractive to the farmers but they are still continue to supply to the local and the export market.”
Most of the dalo production is concentrated in the Wainunu and Nadi Districts and some in the Vuya, Bua and Dama districts.
