THE Ministry of Agriculture will turn Vanua Levu into a hub of livestock.

Fiji’s Minister for Agriculture Dr Mahendra Reddy told farmers in Tabia, Macuata, that there was great potential in the North and achieving this plan was possible.

He said the Government would continue to support every farmer but farmers needed to treat agriculture as a business and not as a leisure activity.

“Once you expand your agriculture business and can survive on your own, then you can attend to it without continuous Government assistance,” Dr Reddy said.

“This is because we will help other farmers who need Government help and trying to get to where you’ve all reached in surviving well.”
