Cabinet approves 250 million compensation for ‘Sena’ hit farmers

Cabinet approval has been granted to the proposal made by Agriculture Minister P Harrison to compensate farmers whose crops are affected by the Fall Armyworm (FAW- Sena caterpillar) menace.

 Accordingly, an amount of Rs 250 million will be allocated to provide the compensations.

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe has also instructed relevant authorities to implement a proper island wide campaign to curb this menace.

During a meeting of UNP parliamentarians held on Monday at Temple Trees, their attention was drawn to get the assistance of Armed forces to control the spread of FAW.
