With the current El Niño weather conditions expected to intensify soon, resulting in a long dry spell, a task force is being set up in Guyana to spearhead the government interventions that may become necessary.

“That task force will brief the Press and the nation on the issue and how to conserve so that we can see this potential crisis, through without too much ill effects, and interventions are made to ensure that the El Niño situation remain under control,” Minister of Agriculture Noel Holder said yesterday.

He indicated that while the situation is just about normal at this stage, it will change in another two months, adding that the agriculture sector would feel the effects of El Niño most.
