Amiruddin says Selangor has achieved success in farming despite only 12 of the state‘s land being available for agriculture.

FARMERS in Selangor have been given the assurance that existing plots of agricultural land will be protected so that they will not be taken up for other purposes, including housing development.

The assurance came from Selangor Mentri Besar Amirudin Shari, who said the state is already short of agricultural land with only 12% available for farming and it was not in a position to lose anymore of it. In the past, he said, agricultural land had been converted for housing and industries in Selangor.
