Naitasiri farmers are expected to get $7 million from ginger production by 2013, says Fiji’s Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama.

Speaking at the Naitasiri provincial meeting yesterday in Kalabu, Bainimarama said the government will give $200,000 to assist the farmers to plant 4,500 tonnes of ginger.

The farmers earned $3.5 million last year from ginger production.

The government will also help with vanilla, cocoa and rice farming.
