Farmers around the country are urged to take precautionary measures following a tropical cyclone warning that is in force for most parts of the Fiji Group.

The Ministry of Agriculture is advising farmers to take necessary precautions in securing their properties and livestock.

Farmers, who reside in flood prone areas, are advised to move animals, machineries and farm implements to higher grounds and to secure livestock sheds.

Farmers can also move planting materials to higher grounds so that they can be used after the flood has receded.

The Ministry of Agriculture is also advising farmers to be wary of culverts and other waterways created by floods and to keep family members and animals away from them.
