Joel Neva, after completing the English potato demonstration and planting in Ward 1 and Ward 2 in Woitape LLG, he was extracted back into Lae on the 25th of March 2017.
He flew back into Sopu with the Sopu, Tapini and Kailape potato seeds on 27th April 2017.
Goilala District Development Authority has funded potato funding project to be distributed and planted district-wide.
Entry into Sopu signals the completion of Woitape LLG and entry into Tapini LLG. With the National Elections fast approaching, the chances of extending the project into Guari LLG is very slim.
However, it the incumbent Open MP Hon William Samb retains his seat, this project seems very definite to spread into the rest of Tapini LLG and enter Guari LLG before 2017 ends.
Sopu people had the opportunity to be taught by Joel Neva, an experienced Didiman who has spent the last 4months walking the rugged terrains of Goilala.
Sopu people distributed their potato bags across to the neighbouring Iveiava and Lole and Lamanaipo villages.
The demonstration plot used at Sopu would be used as a guide by the locals to have their seeds planted.
Joel was extracted on Friday 31st of March 2017 back into Lae to prepare for the Super Talapia fingerlings to be brought into Kosipe very soon.
