TUBMANBURG, March 9 (LINA) - The National Coordinator of the Farmers Union Network of Liberia, Mr. Julius Momolu Bass, says improving the livelihood of farmers across the country remains a major priority on the institution’s agenda.
Bass said the union has instituted important frameworks aimed at educating farmers about how they can move from the costly traditional farming to modern farming.
He made the comment in an interview with the Liberia News Agency at the close of a one-day validation of a Consultation Report of the Union in Tubmanburg, Bomi County over the weekend.
The one-day meeting brought together over 50 farmers from the four counties of the Western region -- Montserrado, Grand Cape Mount, Bomi and Gbarpolu counties.
Bass disclosed that at the end of the meeting the farmers adopted recommendations to coordinate and consolidate their efforts to begin to establish seed banks in their various counties.
