Scientific Officer Antoine Ravo says despite the devastating effects of the natural disaster, many farmers have recovered through farming in which they are able to get good harvests of sweet potato and other root crops.

Recently farmers have enjoyed a harvest of high yielding  sweet potatoes  through a field day conducted jointly by the Vanuatu Department of Agriculture and PNG’s NARI.
