Highland farmers strategize on maximizing income potential

September 24, 2018 10:47 pm

Farmers from the interior of Naitasiri, Navosa and Ba met at Rewasau Village, Naitasiri to discuss opportunities to maximize income generation through agricultural practices.

The meeting provided a platform for peer learning as representatives from these various areas shared practical issues faced and discussed opportunities and solutions to overcome these challenges.

Cluster representative of Noikoro, Nasikawa and Nadrau, Ilaisa Niutabua says that the potential for growth in these areas was not realized because of their remote locations.

Niutabua says government has addressed these challenges by empowering them with information and skills needed to boost agricultural production and reduce hardships faced by families.

More than 50 farmers were part of the two-day meeting organized by the Ministry of Agriculture through the Fiji Agricultural Partnership Project.

The FAPP project and the Ministry of Agriculture will now be working with other stakeholders to see how best to address the central issue of farm road access raised by farmers.
