In Brief: Bank calls for two crops

The Rural Development Bank (RDB) has called on farmers in the countryside to focus on planting two crops per year to increase productivity, support food security and for export. The call echoes that of the Prime Minister Hun Sen, he said, which aims to reduce dependency on imports and the need for migrants to work illegally abroad. The call, he added, forms part of the One Village, One Product" promotion. A cash injection of up to US$200 million was required in rural areas, he said.
