Extension officers from the Food Production Ministry are in areas evaluating and assessing the extent of damage suffered by farmers in various communities that have been flooded.
Food Production Minister, Devant Maharaj, in a News Power Now interview on Monday, said measures have been put in place to avoid any abuse of the compensation initiative.
He said the bulk of the calls for help from farmers are coming from districts in east Trinidad.
Minister Maharaj also explained that the compensation given does not cover all the losses experienced by farmers.
