WESTERN BUREAU:

FLOYD GREEN, member of parliament (MP) for St Elizabeth South Western, is urging the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries to accelerate the implementation of a modern irrigation system to support farmers in Flagaman and the wider parish of St Elizabeth.

Green made the call yesterday during the handover of relief materials to farmers who were affected by a bushfire that destroyed their crops last month.

“I want to say to the ministry team, to the minister (Pearnel Charles Jr), we have to try to accelerate the pace. We have to speed up the process to get irrigation into this area,” Green pleaded.

‘I know we are far advanced in the planning stage, but I can tell you it is overdue, and our farmers are ready for it,” the former agriculture and fisheries minister said.
