Agriculture Minister Floyd Green urges executive of JAS to fix internal issues, and focus on helping farmers

Agriculture Minister Floyd Green has urged the executive of the Jamaica Agricultural Society (JAS) to fix its internal issues quickly and focus on helping farmers.

His comments come in the wake of reports that JAS board member Lawrence Robertson will be filing a motion for contempt of court.

This, as the JAS held its annual general meeting yesterday despite an injunction against it.

Speaking at the JAS general meeting yesterday, Mr. Green noted that the organization has been preoccupied with election related matters.  

He said the JAS has become a dependent entity, and this must change if it is to carry out its core function of helping farmers.
