TUBMANBURG, June 23 (LINA) - Bomi County Assistant Superintendent for Development, Ernest Gray Davies, says the participation of citizens of the county in agricultural activities over the past two years is impressive.
“Famers in the county have done very well in terms of agricultural productivity over the past two years,” Assistant Superintendent Davies emphasized.
In an interview with the Liberia News Agency on Wednesday in Tubmanburg, Davies noted that the farmers have cooperated with the Famers Registration Process in Bomi County, and are prepared to increase agricultural productivity to feed themselves and other counties in the Western Region.
According to Assistant Superintendent Davies, a recent assessment showed that there are more than 6,000 farms, including rice farms, in the county.
He named crops being grown as pineapple, yam, rice, eddoes, potatoes and plantain, among others.
Meanwhile, Assistant Superintendent Davies is appealing to government agencies, local and international non-governmental organizations with interest in agriculture to assist farmers in the county with farming tools and inputs to enhance their work.
