Farming PNG – Episode 4, 2017

Farming PNG goes to the port city of Lae, looking to uncover some of the challenges facing the agriculture industry in Papua New Guinea.

After travelling for long hours down the Highlands Highway over challenging road conditions, perishable agricultural products often have to face long waiting by the wharf in the absence of refrigeration facilities, resulting therefore in heavy loss products and quality.

As in other sectors of the national economy, the lack of reliable sources of power is one of the biggest stumbling blocks for the growth of the horticultural sector, but the biomass project currently developed by Oil Search, just on the outskirt of the city of Lae, may bring some relief soon.
