A highlight of ‘Farmers' and Fishers' Week 2021’ was the dedication of a brand new tractor for the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries. Director Mr. Theodore James said that the tractor, purchased through Parts and Power Ltd., is necessary equipment that will serve multiple uses at the department including assisting farmers with the ploughing of their lands.
