Working on idle land can grow the agricultural sector – FBC News

There is more and more wasteland in the North and landowners have been urged to make use of it.

Addressing farmers in Wainikoro and Nadogo in Cakaudrove, Agriculture Minister Dr Mahendra Reddy pointed out that the land had gone unused because leases had not been renewed for many years.

He adds that landowners who are also farmers should tap into this abundant resource and help the sector grow.

“No one will benefit from idle and unused land, not landowners, not farmers, not households, not workers. We push for the growth and development of agriculture. We want landowners to open up and think positively about their resources. Unused and unproductive land had no value.

The minister says this will also help reduce Fiji’s reliance on imported products and improve food security.

The Ministry of Agriculture continues to offer initiatives to farmers to increase their investments in the agricultural sector while helping them meet local and export demands.
