PS warns against reselling plants propagated at government facilities

Aaron Francois, Permanent Secretary (PS) in the Ministry of Agriculture, has warned against reselling plants propagated by the 4 facilities operated by Government. He did not disclose the people engaged in the reselling, but explained that reselling has become a thriving business.

“The plants are not for resale; the plants are intended for farmers to go and establish productive fields, and so we expect the agronomy division and the extension division to work closely to make sure that all the plants that will be distributed will go in the field, not in a place for resale,” Francois said during the ceremonial commencement of plants distribution for the 2023 planting season.
