Farmers expect good harvest

Author : Memoscar Lasuba | Published: 3 years ago

The South Sudan Farmers’ Union says it expects good crop harvests this year due to improved rainfall in many parts of the country.

The Union is responding to the weather report released by the South Sudan Metrological Department on Monday.

In the report, areas of Raja, the Upper Nile region and Pibor had a lot of rainfall over the past three months.

It said only most parts of former Central Equatoria State were facing lower rainfall compared to last year.

“Even in Eastern Equatoria people have gone into farming and I believe we are going to approach next year with Joy,” said Edward Kenyi Sworo, chairperson of the farmers’ union.

Some of the states did not take part in farming due to incidents of violence.

They include the former Western Equatoria state and some parts of the Bahr el Ghazal Region.
