Agriculture: Tonga Recovery Factsheets

The massive eruption of the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’aipi volcano in January 2022 has devastated communities and will have far-reaching effects on Tonga agriculture.

SPC’s Land Resources Division (LRD) has responded by consulting its agriculture and soil experts to produce a series of information sheets that will guide crop and livestock farmers on how to respond to challenges in the eruption’s aftermath.

The sheets focus on emergency response for cattle, pigs, chickens, ducks, goats, sheep and horses, as well as the impacts of volcanic ashfall and saltwater inundation on agriculture.
