Seeds to be produced locally

Feb 3, 2011 10:22:59 AM - itnnews.lk

The Government has decided to provide a seed pack needed for home garden cultivation to every school child. The purpose of this effort is to accelerate national food production under the “Api Wawamu Rata Nagamu” Programme.

The Government has decided to accelerate National Food Production. The programme is being mooted jointly by the Ministries to contain a hike in the prices of food which are required daily. The Cabinet has unanimously given the nod to provide political leadership for this programme.

In the meantime, a decision has been taken to grow short term crops on cultivable lands which were devastated by floods. This is a proposal of Minister Maithripala Sirisena.
