One of Volta Region’s vegetable crop production hubs, Anloga, risks low yield this year as a result of heavy downpour which has left most farms destroyed in the process.
An assessment done by the news team from Rymcitigh has revealed that the situation would likely affect tomato farmers since the farming season is near. Most farms have been taken over by flood waters, thereby making the farmers unsure about what the rest of the rainy season holds.
The worrying trend, if not carefully addressed, could have dire implication for food sufficiency and food security for the country since some crops are already submerged.
The Anloga District, which has predominantly smallholder farmers, is noted for the production of food items such as tomato, shallot, carrot, onion, spring onion, okra and many more.
The farmers are therefore calling on the powers-that-be, especially officials from the District Assembly and other concerned bodies to come to their aid.
