Agricultural and Rural Development Authority ARDA is set to rollout sunflower production across the country as part of government efforts to enhance import substitution on cooking oil. ARDA Board Chairperson Craig Ivan said the move is also aimed at promoting rural industrialization as the product has more nutritional benefits to communities. He added that planting is already in progress as they are targeting to establish at least 7000 hectares of sunflower from their estates.
