Do you want everyone in your organisation to be up-to-date on the latest agricultural news? See if you can adapt this simple but smart practice developed over the last fifteen months by the Office of Information and Communication section of Fiji s ministry of agriculture. For more than a year, four members of staff writers and designers have come into work an hour early, at 7 am, spending their first 60 minutes reading the newspapers and making one. First they cull stories from all four national morning papers published in their nation s capital. On a typical day (the picture shows an issue from mid-February) there were eight such stories, including support from northern province farmers for reorganising the sugar board; a probe by US health authorities into alleged liver failure caused by consuming kava (a major Fijian export); reports of misused agricultural project funds; a failure in fertiliser quality tests, plus listings of that evening s rural radio programmes in Fijian and in Hindi. They write up summaries of these stories, adding some proverbs, quotations and photos. Then, using their desk-top publishing set up, they produce and print a newssheet of 2 or 4 pages, delivering it at 8am to all departments in headquarters, and slipping into the morning s internal post to out-stations and extension staff.
