Jack saplings for rural farmers

Former Kurunegala Rotary Chairman Martin Silva has commenced a programme to distribute a million of jack saplings under the Government's accelerated programme of making the country self-sufficient in food.

The jack saplings will be grown in rural nurseries and distributed among villagers.

He said that the saplings will be planted close to tanks and rivers taking into account the growing demand for timber in the country.
