The Ministry of Agriculture is advising farmers to take precautionary measures following a tropical disturbance warning that is now in force for the Fiji Group.

Farmers are urged to take heed of advisories issued by the Fiji Meteorological Service and put in place plans to secure livestock and property.

The Ministry is urging farmers who reside in flood prone areas to move their animals, machinery and farm implements to higher grounds and secure their livestock sheds.

Farmers should monitor their crops which are in flood prone areas to avoid losses. Planting materials can be moved to higher grounds which can be used after the flood has receded.

Farmers also need to be wary of culverts and other waterways created by floods and keep family members and animals away from them.
