Farm create go waste in Pusiga District


Veggies farms in the Pusiga District of the Upper East Area are perishing as roadways linking the farms to sector centres are washed absent by the 7 days-extended torrential rains.

The spillage of the Bagre and Kompienga Dams in Burkina Faso has also been a contributing element.

Numerous communities in the area have been lower off from the district money and other districts in the Bawku enclave thanks to very poor road networks, making it tough for farmers to accessibility their farms and transport their develop to the current market centres.

The downpour induced the White Volta and its tributaries to overflow their financial institutions, therefore washing absent streets and earning it tough for farmers who have been ready to harvest their greens, to access the markets.

Some of the greens contain tomatoes, pepper, onion, yard eggs, cabbage, and cucumber.

Speaking in an interview, Mahamudu Iddi, the Pusiga District Director of the Office of Agriculture, observed that vegetable farmers were being most affected in the location as they could not transport their perishable products to the marketplace centres at the district money in Pusiga, Bawku and Bolgatanga.

He stated many crops, typically maize, millet, and sorghum along the tributaries of the White Volta had been destroyed as some of the farms ended up washed away even though some others were being waterlogged.

Mr Iddi said the area was already a water-locked prone region coupled with a lousy street network linking the farming communities to the industry centres and other districts and so the impact of the rains was devastating, even even though it was as well early to assess the complete impression of the flood.

He claimed the Zongnatinga and the Kolnaba Rivers between other tributaries of the White Volta that experienced overflown their banking companies therefore fully destroying several hectares of crops in major communities such as Dabia, Nakom, Margo, Zaarabogo, and Ninkongo communities.
