    Of coarse, allow the rice to be imported. the price is good. and i support the farmers down south to be paid equally just like the mennonites in Blue Creek. Afterall mennonite rice and beans are not quality at all. Lieing to the people. They are not good at all. you still find peble and stone fromn their rice. beans are rotten and selling it expensive too. thats not quality They are not good at all. Not quality.

    @Peter So you can tell me that it is logical and productive to import rice that is not sustainable on the long run, when we as a country have finally gained self sustainability in this area? You tell me that that is logical?

    Guys am not against local producers. what i am against is the fact the rice are not good as they say. No. 2
    My question to you who do you call local producer?
    Hello i am a farmer and i knw what i am saying.
    why are their rice being paid more than those of the south when the menonite rice have a lot of rock and pebles. is that quality? hello. wake up and smeel the coffee. Why were their exports were being put on hold in jamaica and guyana? Wakeup.
