Niger posts better agro-pastoral season

samedi 17 mars 2007, par temoust


“Niger has seen a better agro- pastoral season with more harvest of cereals and forage thanks to good weather conditions.

The agro-pastoral season which just came to an end was much better than that of the previous year, as it was positive in terms of surplus in cereals as well as in forage, said Bare Hawa, president of the national Food Crisis Prevention and Management Committee, at annual meeting on food crisis management held here Wednesday and Thursday.

The surplus is estimated at 450,000 tons of cereals and 788,793 tons of forage, said Hawa, attributing it to a good and evenly distributed rainfall in space and time, as well as negligible activities by predators and other enemies of farming.

Isn’t this in contradiction with the former message on “Hunger in Niger” ?


N’est il pas en contradiction avec le message précédent sur la “Faim au Niger” ?
