Home gardens found wanting
Many home gardens coming under the Divi Neguma programme have not
been fully utilized by the owners to cultivate as expected. This has
been revealed by a survey conducted by the Economic Development Ministry
recently, Divi Neguma Director Jayathilake Herath said.
"Therefore, the Ministry will provide plant necessities free of
charge to fulfil all short comings in home gardens," he said.
Under this programme the Economic Development Ministry has drawn up
plans to establish food stability during this year. While seeking
solutions to problems in each district relating to the Divi Neguma
programme, he said. The ministry has drawn up plans to activate a proper
programme that goes beyond the order of circulars, he said.
