Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency on Thursday in Tubmanburg, Superintendent Davis said one of the projects was Seed Multiplication for Cassava Growers in Banana Farm, covering about 25 acres of land to enhance the Cassava Sector in the county.

The Assistant Superintendent also disclosed that the Consultant of the German Agro Action has returned to the county.
