Cultivate every home garden to avoid starvation: Amaraweera

It is essential to grow food crops on all available land in order to face the famine which is to hit the nation in the future, Minister of Agriculture Mahinda Amaraweera said yesterday.

“ Giving concessions alone will not help as such an exercise will not help allay starvation,” the Minister told Media.

“ It is no point having funds if it there is no food available. Therefore what has to be done is to grow foods crops in every available plot of land,” he added.

“ All Ministers should start cultivating food crops in their home gardens. Public servants should also join agriculture officers to overcome the challenge which the country is bound to face in the future,” he added
