This brings the total number of polyclonal cashew seeds and cashew seedlings distributed so far to Sixty Thousand (60,000).
The DCE stated that the distribution was in line with government's flagship programme dubbed "Planting for Export and Rural Development."
He admonished beneficiary farmers to "concentrate more on the growing of the seeds and seedlings, which is a process than the singular act of just dumping them in the ground."
The Agric Extension Officers and farmers present, promised to ensure that the survival rate was high as it was a sustainable way of getting out of poverty.
