FARMERS in Wards 11 and 12 at Northwest Choiseul have increased planting of Kava after a Kava training workshop was recently being held at Pupuku purposely to promote Kava.
According to Hon Nerio Ulemiki the MPA for Ward 12 at Varisi Lavata reporting, the interest in planting Kava has increased because Farmers find it is easier (Kava) to look after compared to other commodities.
“Kava Farmers through the Agriculture Division at Taro Station will form their Kava Association and liaise with Varivao Holdings to buy their Kava products.
“They are very happy with the initiative of Varivao Holdings Company in liaise with the Choiseul Agriculture Division to provide Kava Trainings and the initiative to buy from them their Kava products and other commodities in the future,” said Hon Ulemiki.
