POTATO SEEDS REACH YONGAI – FARMING.


When Goilala MP Hon William Samb entered office in August 2015, his District Development Authority embarked on Socio-Economics as one of their priority areas to address.

Potato Seeds are in Yongai
These potatoe seeds were bought from Wabag, driven through Hagen, and Simbu. Spent a couple of days at Goroka, driven to Lae, after a couple of days, they flew into Goilala on a Manolos chopper.

Michael Atuai was taken onboard as the lead in this farming project. Mr. Atuai tapped into Fresh Produce Development Agency, and National Agriculture Research Institute network and resources. They source these seeds from Wabag’s seed nursery to supply Goilala District.

So far, GDDA has delivered potato seeds into  Tanipai, Kosipe, Fane, Ononge and Kambisea.

Out of the recently sourced 50 potato bags bought from the FPDA facilitated arrangement from Wabag, 20 bags were flown into Yongai, using the GDDA established MOU arrangement with Manolos Aviation out of Lae, Morobe Province.
