Solution for vegetable shortage

Jan 30, 2011 8:22:19 AM - itnnews.lk

A Joint programme has been mooted for the cultivation of vegetables.

Vegetable cultivation in many areas was devastated due to the recent floods. Accordingly, the aim of the programme is to avoid a shortage of vegetables during the forthcoming festival and contain a price hike. The Agricultural Ministry has planned to launch the programme in some selected Districts. The first stage to brief public officials was held at the Matale District Secretariat. Minister Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena patronized in the occasion. Deputy Minister Rohana Dissanayake was among those present.
