PADIBERAS Nasional Bhd (Bernas) will contribute RM50 million to the government at the end of this month and this will be distributed to padi farmers nationwide beginning in March, Agriculture and Food Security Minister Mohamad Sabu said.

He said each farmer will receive RM250 but this special aid will not involve those in Kelantan, Terengganu and Pahang, who have received theirs in stages since last year.
