Farmers and fishers from  the Central Division were recognised yesterday for their hard work.

Tailevu, Naitasiri, Rewa, Namosi and Serua farmers and fishers were told to continue to pursue their passion.

Ministry of Agriculture assistant minister Viam Pillay also said: “The Farmers Award is an initiative taken by the Ministry of Agriculture to recognise the contribution made by farmers to the development of the agriculture sector as part of the Agriculture show.

“It is a token of appreciation and recognition by Government through the Ministry of Agriculture for the hard and honest work put in by all farmers in the Central Division.”

More than 70 Awards were handed out yesterday to farmers for areas ranging from crops to livestock, fisheries, forests, school gardens and farmer clusters.

Recognition Awards were also given to stakeholders as an appreciation by the Government through the Ministry of Agriculture for their contribution to driving the agriculture sector in the Central Division.

The Agriculture Show aims to creates awareness of the sector, showcasing its roles, responsibilities and contribution to the social and economic development of the country, Mr Pillay said.
