Farmers throughout Saint Vincent and the Grenadines are being encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to access fertilizers at a reduced price at the Agricultural Input Warehouse.

The call came from Prime Minister, Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, during his weekly discussion programme aired on NBC Radio yesterday, Wednesday, 15th July.

Dr. Gonsalves said the initiative is intended to assist farmers in boosting agricultural production during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Dr. Gonsalves also appealed to persons within the Ministry of Agriculture to make every effort to accommodate farmers seeking  to purchase the fertilizers.
