Integrated approach for weed management
Georgetown, GINA, January 30, 2009
Aquatic weeds are often found in waterways of cultivation areas. They impede the free flow of water, create transportation difficulties and increase the storage capacity in these waterways which may be problematic to farmers during the rainy season. In this light, Government has intensified its efforts to support farmers by embarking on a strategy for weed management in these waterways.A workshop today under the theme “An integrated approach to aquatic weed management in Guyana”, was held at the National Agricultural Research Institute (NARI) conference facility at which Minister of Agriculture Robert Persaud, representatives from the Neighbourhood Democratic Councils (NDCs), water users associations and other agriculture officials were present.
