Sookoo: Small farmers won’t benefit from budget incentives


    Incentives for agriculture outlined in the budget will wipe out small farmers, according to Agricultural Society President, Dhano Sookoo.

    Speaking on the announcement by the Finance Minister of the removal of taxes for registered farmers, Ms Sookoo claims only a few will benefit.

    Ms Sookoo says the sector would gain more from incentives geared at sustainability.
