Over 20,000 farmers affected by the recent heavy rains will receive assistance from the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries under its National Recovery Programme over the next few months.

Notably, this program is to be implemented by the Rural Agricultural Development Authority (RADA).

Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries Floyd Green said the $646.9-million programme is likely to give boost to the agricultural sector.

“We will be focusing also on rehabilitating greenhouses, helping our livestock farmers, especially those in relation to small ruminants and our bee farmers to get them back on their feet,” said Minister Green.
