Amaraweera vows to continue toxin free farming

New agriculture minister Mahinda Amaraweera has vowed to take forward the toxin free farming concept.

Enforcing his promise personally, he will cultivate his paddy field in Hambantota without using any chemical from next season.

For that, he has obtained advice from the Strategic Enterprise Management Agency.

Also, he will present, as his first cabinet paper, a proposal to grant the fertilizer subsidy for biological farming.
