Agriculture Minister Reginald Austrie calls for farmers to get certified, and address farm labour issues that are now confronting them
Agriculture Minister Reginald Austrie says there needs to be a discussion among relevant stakeholders on how the labour issues that are now confronting the farming community should be addressed.
Austrie says the availability of labour is also an issue.
He says there is a serious labour problem in the agricultural sector, and unless this can be addressed frontally, benefits may not be realized.
He is calling for farmers to get certified.
Meantime, Austrie says there has to be a greater mode of communication among the ministry, the farmers and the general public as to what is happening in agriculture.
