ASTT helps flood-affected farmers


    The Agricultural Society is seeking to assist farmers who were severely affected by flooding late last year.

    ASTT President Dhano Sookoo says provisions were made to help householders but up to now, nothing has been done to aid the farmers.

    In that regard, she says through collaboration with several entities, they are distributing seeds and other items.

    Ms Sookoo says the recipients, chosen after assessments, are from areas under heavy agricultural production over the years.

    At the distribution ceremony earlier today, the Agricultural Development Bank was also on hand to give information about the services available to farmers.
