Crop and livestock council to assist affected farmers

The Fiji Crop and Livestock Council (FCLC) had the opportunity last week to listen to registered commodity farmer members on the challenges Tropical Cyclone Winston imposed on their respective commodities.The Farmers’ National Committee Association’s planning workshop that was held in Suva turned into a needs assessment for the heads of national commodity associations and member farmers. FCLC Chairman Simon Cole said the dialogue provided a very structured and common sense approach to the economic recovery of the agricultural sector for all the commodities that FCLC represents.FCLC Chairman Simon Cole said the dialogue provided a very structured and common sense approach to the economic recovery of the agricultural sector for all the commodities that FCLC represents. We’ll be able to then work with the authorities and the people distributing the aid and planning the economic recovery. FCLC will ensure the voice of the farmers is considered in the middle of this recovery process. Impact levels varied according to the geographical areas that were thumped by Cyclone Winston. Non-sugar commodities dalo, yaqona, cocoa, ginger, coconuts, grazing livestock (sheep, goats, beef), and beekeepers are situated in zones badly affected by the cyclone.
