BFDU Head Urges Farmers To Grow More Food 

By Korboi K. Gbelewala, LINA Lofa County Correspondent

VOINJAMA, March 13 (LINA) – The head of the Bondi Farmers Development Union (BFDU) in Lofa County, Jallah Korboi, is calling on farmers in the county to engage in low-land farming in order to produce more rice.

Korboi observed that if every farmer in the county engages in low-land farming, hunger will be eradicated from Lofa, allowing the county to regain its pre-war status as the “bread basket” of Liberia.

The Bondi Farmers Development Union official also urged Lofians to reserve the upland bush to plant pepper, bitter balls, onions and other vegetables.

According tom the Liberia News Agency, Korboi made the call Friday when he visited several farming sites in Bondi Clan, Voinjama District in Lofa County.

He told LINA that the Union last February distributed several farming materials and seeds to 22 towns in Bondi Clan to help the county eliminate poverty and urged farmers to use the supplies to empower themselves.
