Garbage crisis prevails at Rice Research Centre

The Ambalantota Rice Research Station’s paddy fields had become a dumping ground for garbage recently, Station Officer-in-Charge Dr. Roshini Hafeel said and added that traders and residents of the area were responsible.

The issue had disrupted the station’s research; therefore, authorities were informed on the matter, she said; however, there had so far been no response.

The Rice Research Station had introduced numerous paddy varieties, including the AT-372 variety and as such, was an important institution, Hafeel said.
