Presidents Message:

The theme of the 2004 Morobe Show is Farm to Feed and we would like everyone to stop and think briefly about the message behind the theme.

Papua New Guinea has a rapidly growing population. The Papua New Guinea population is also predominantly comprised of subsistence farmers who, for the large part, grow sufficient for their own needs only.

Papua New Guineans are successful skilled farmers with the crafts that they have having being handed down from generation to generation. The opportunity exists now for the subsistence farmers of Papua New Guinea to increase the production and varieties of the crops that they grow to feed the ever-growing population.

Growing crops is one thing. Getting them to market is another and this is where Government must put aside the rhetoric and actually do something about rural roads and marketing vehicles for agricultural produce. Papua New Guinea will gradually find that it unable to Feed its growing population because of the impassable roads that separate the population and the Farm.

The skills that Papua New Guinean farmers have must be utilised to the fullest and their practical knowledge enhanced through extension services passing on knowledge of better agricultural practices, new and improved varieties of produce to grow, information on access to finance for expansion, knowledge of market requirements and prices would certainly help them improve the quality and quantity of Farm produce available for local consumption.

Commodity crops are vital to the Papua New Guinea economy but food crops that supply PNG staples and import replacements are vital for the Papua New Guinea population.

Come and enjoy the 2004 Morobe Show. Visit the displays that we will have there and as well as having a good time see what you can learn.

Use the land; use your skills and Farm to Feed.
