AFAN seeks FG’s support for dry season farming in Imo


All Farmers Association of Nigeria (AFAN), Imo chapter, has appealed to the Federal Government to assist farmers in the state overcome the challenges associated with dry season farming.

Dr Vitus Enwerem, the AFAN Chairman in Imo, made the appeal while addressing newsmen in Owerri on Monday.

Enwerem, who decried dependence of farmers on the state on rainfall as the sole source of water for farming, urged government to consider the construction of dams in the state.

He commended farmers who could afford boreholes for irrigation during the dry season, adding that the water level in most parts of the state made sinking of boreholes unaffordable for most farmers in the state.
