Farmers' Registration Cards Shortage Hits LATA

By Chris T. Nyenapee, LINA Grand Gedeh County Correspondent

ZWEDRU, May 29 (LINA) – A shortage of cards is hampering the registration of farmers under the Liberia Agricultural Transformation Agenda (LATA) program launched by the Ministry of Agriculture in Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County.

Already, a total of 5,900 farmers have been registered thus far with 900 in Tchien District alone since the launch of the exercise on March 18, according to the Grand Field Coordinator of LATA, G. Pele Gowah.

Gowah told the Liberia News Agency in an interview recently that the shortage is due to the intensification of the exercise with scores of farmers’ turning out in recent days.

He indicated that the farmers provide information such as their name, date of birth, location and acreage of cultivated land, noting that they have already covered six districts in the county.

The lack of logistics has become an impediment in their efforts to go to “hard-to-reach” districts like Gboe, Ploe and Glio, he pointed out, hoping that the hurdles would claim the attention of the authority.
