Heavy rain from TC Sarai helps the agricultural sector

Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 06/01/2020

Despite the heavy rain from Tropical Cyclone Sarai causing some damage last week, the CEO of Agriculture says it really helped the agricultural sector.

Dr Viliami Manu says, Tonga has been experiencing a lot of sunny days in the weeks prior to the cyclone and the rain that it brought assures growers that their crops and plantation won’t be affected.

Most of the damage Tropical Cyclone Sarai caused was affecting the fruit trees.

Officers from the Ministry of Agriculture and NEMO are still assessing the damage made from TC Sarai.
