The number of taro containers exported for the past month has more than doubled.
That’s according to an official at the Ministry of Agriculture, Fa’avaeolenu’u Tamoe Tautu.
“Compared to last February, there were only two containers of taro that was sent overseas. Last month the outcome was really good,” he said.
“There were four and a half containers for March.”
But the good news means the Ministry needs to ensure the quality of the exported taro is the best.
That’s why the Ministry is continuing to limit the varieties of taro being exported due to risks.
