Conserving genetic resources for food security

Plant Genetic Resources are a national wealth that must be properly conserved and utilized for crop improvement and food security. However, like other Pacific Island countries, Solomon Islands continues to lose its genetic base of food crops at a much faster rate, says a Solomon Islands agriculturalist, Mary Esekana, after completing a two-week intensive training at NARI in Lae.


Rural industry needs leadership

The rural industry needs effective and strong leadership to drive development aspirations in this changing PNG economy, says Brown Bai, Chairman of Rural Industries Council.
Mr Bai said there is obvious lack of leadership both at political and administrative levels, resulting in the sector going around in circle without achieving much when agriculture is the backbone of this country and over 80 % of its people live off the land.
“The industry needs political and administrative leadership,” Mr Bai stressed.
