Resilient crops

Call for Vanuatu farmers to plant more resilient crops

The call has gone out as the Vanuatu Methodology and Geo-Hazards Department (VMGD) is predicting high chances of La Niña forming and lasting until November this year. 

The Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (DARD) said it takes the advisory from VMGD seriously and wants farmers to start making decisions and act. 

The La Niña phenomena is expected to bring normal or above rainfall for the next three to six months and can cause flooding and landslides.  

La Niña can affect agriculture.
