Crop yields not affected by hot spell

PORT DICKSON, The Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Ministry has so far not received any report of crop yields being affected by the hot and dry weather that has currently hit the nation, said its Deputy Minister Sim Tze Tzin.

Therefore, water resources are very important and require the cooperation of all parties, for example, if we manage the water resources well, we can cultivate paddy throughout the year.

The ministry through its Agricultural Drainage and Irrigation division has provided an effective irrigation schedule for farmers to avoid water shortages during dry spell season, but this will only work if all farmers follow the schedule, he told reporters after a working visit to Port Dickson today.
