Based on your own experience as a farmer, do you believe RADA is meeting its mandate to assist members of the local farming community?

Jerry Warner, bee and livestock farmer

I have received a little bit of benefit from RADA ... nothing much to speak about. If you do get some benefit, there is usually a cost to it.

Andrew Polack, ground provisions farmer

No, because I was registered with RADA in 2010, and I was told I'd get a RADA identification card, and there is nothing happening with that, so I think they are very unreliable.

Earl Buchanan, ground provisions farmer

Sometimes you link with the RADA personnel and they are more likely to speak than to take action. I think they can do much better rather than speaking.

Lesbourne Durant, ground provisions farmer

It's not working the way it is supposed to work. RADA could do much better than this. I don't know what they have in hand.
