In light of recent weather reports, the Agriculture Ministry is advising farmers to take the necessary precautions in securing property and livestock.

In a statement, the Ministry of Agriculture states that Farmers are advised to move animals, machineries and farm implements to higher grounds and secure livestock sheds.

It is also advisable for farmers to monitor crops which are in flood prone areas to avoid losses during flooding. Farmers can also move planting materials to higher grounds so that they can be used after the flood water has receded.

Farmers also need to be wary of culverts and other waterways created by floods and keep family members and animals away from them.
