Cabinet has approved $250 million in additional funding to the Agriculture Ministry towards the expansion of the Farm Road Rehabilitation Programme and the Production Incentives Programme.

It says the additional budgetary support stemmed from the success of the production incentives and to the stymieing the effect of the poor state of farm roads.

One-hundred-and-fifty million dollars will be spent to rehabilitate 143 kilometres of roads and $100 million in production incentives.
