N/R: Farming; Farmers In Fear As There Is No Sign Of Rain In The Region.

Both the commercial and substantial Farmers in the Northern region are in fear as there is no sign of rain in this farming season.

This is the season that Farmers in the Northern Region experience rain to set in for them to cultivate their crops but unfortunately, there is no sign of rain in the region and this has put Farmers in a great dilemma.

Some of the crops that was earlier on cultivated since the months of December 2020 and January 2021 has not germinated (yam) since it has not rain on it but is under the heat of the scorching sun.

The farmers largely depend on the rain for their farming activities since they are into large scale farming for which irrigation is not appropriate.

Even those rivers that could supply water for irrigation for the small scale Farmers are all dried up.

As a result, this has really imposed a very big challenge on the farmers and they are therefore hopeless as to whether it would rain or not.

As a matter of facts, some have speculated that there would be a lot of hunger in the region and the country as a whole if the rain did not set in at an appropriate time.
