By David Pamas Seedee

TUBMANBURG, Jan 18 (LINA) - The Manager of the Edwin Snowe and Sons Pumah Farm in Weakama, Senjeh District in Bomi County has disclosed that the management of the farm will begin clearing 400 acres of land in February to cultivate a variety of crops.

The crops will include palm, pineapple, banana and cassava, Farm Manager Paul Flomo told the Liberia News Agency in Weakama at the weekend.

Flomo disclosed that 31,500 palm trees will be planted in June this year.

He said, already, 40,000 pineapples, 6,000 bananas heads and 6,000 cassava heads planted on 60 acres of land on the farm are ready for harvesting.

Mr. Flomo said funding of the farm project is the sole responsibility of Montserrado District Number Six Representative Edwin Snowe.

He said the farm, which was opened in April 2011, has employed 50 persons.

He said the employment took into consideration gender sensitivity with the workforce comprising 50 percent of each sex.

Mr. Flomo is optimistic that more jobs will be created as the size of the farm increases, noting that citizens of Bomi County will be given priority for employment
