Chief Executive Officer, Raj Sharma, said the scheme supported farmers who actually produced sugarcane.

“Apart from these harvesters, there are small machines that have come in to spray your cane farms, plant cane, and apply fertiliser,” he said.

Mr Sharma said the fund was scouting the international market for the benefit of local ginger farmers.

“Within the sugar industry, there are about 2000 people,” he said.

“If these people look to acquire farms, that is what we want to drive.”

“To the working class that have just entered the workforce on salaries that are around $20,000 to $30,000 salary – look to invest in agriculture.”
