FAO has distributed seeds and tool kits to 68 000 farming families in the earthquake zones of Haiti, the first step in the agency’s response to the catastrophe that hit the Caribbean nation.

Another $5 million worth of essential inputs for rural families will be distributed by the end of June. FAO plans to give farmers 1 500 tonnes of food crop seeds, two tonnes of vegetable seeds, 100 000 banana plants, two million yam cuttings, one thousand tonnes of fertilizer and 95 000 tools.
