‘No licences to import crops grown in SL’

The Agriculture Ministry has decided not to issue licences for the importation of certain crops that can be grown in the country next year. During a meeting held with cereal importers at the ministry recently, Agriculture Minister Mahinda Amaraweera informed the importers that he would not allow them to import food crops such as maize, undu, soya, green gram, sesame, finger millet, and groundnuts that could be easily cultivated in the country. The minister invited them to assist farmers to cultivate these food crops in the country and he also pledged to provide lands if it is necessary.
