Farmers encouraged to use modern methods

Special attention has been given to encourage farmers to implement modern technology and other scientific methods, recently.

Agriculture, Rural Economic Affairs, Livestock Development, Irrigation and Fisheries, and Aquatic Resources Development Minister P. Harrison told the Daily News that farmers would be provided with the necessary training. The World Bank is to provide USD 58.65 million for the programme.

We have selected 1,800 farmers from Polonnaruwa, Anuradhapura, Moneragala, Matale, Jaffna, Mullaitivu, and Batticaloa to begin passion fruit, pineapple, mango, guava, papaw, drumstick, peanut, and cucumber cultivation.
