Agric Ministry Rep Plans Increased Farming Activities

By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Cape Mount County Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, May 5 (LINA) -The new Coordinator of the Ministry of Agriculture in Grand Cape Mount County, Edward Greaves, says promotion of farming activities in the county will be the hallmark of his administration.

He said though farmers will not produce sufficient crops in the absence of farming implements from the government, all efforts will be exerted to meet the challenges stifling high yields for farmers.

Greaves was speaking at the weekend during a meeting he held with agriculture representatives of Tewor, Garwula, Porkpa, Gola Kenneh, and Commonwealth Districts in the county.

He cautioned Liberian farmers to desist from acts that will undermine efforts by government to promote agriculture in the country in the aftermath of a devastating 14-year civil conflict.

The coordinator said besides government, some other agriculture-related agencies are making efforts to support agricultural programs in the country to improve the living standards of citizens.

He appealed to the citizens to formulate strategies that will buttress government’s national agriculture program.
