Minister for Agriculture, Food and Fisheries Reginald Austrie says the Ministry is addressing challenges which were faced with the disbursement of over 18 million dollars to farmers on island.

The Program which was funded by the World Bank, saw the distribution of funds to large and small farmers.

The Minister, speaking at a press conference this morning, admitted there were challenges in the execution of the Program.

Austrie says they are also seeking to assist farmers who did not benefit under that Program.
