As farmers prepare their lands for this year’s season, they have been cautioned against early planting which might result into famine in the near future.
This advice was given by the coordinator Kayunga District Farmers Forum (KADFA), Geoffrey Kakooza while addressing the press on Monday.
He revealed that nowadays seasons have changed and hard to predict due to tree cutting, spraying by using artificial pesticide, wet land destruction noting that it is good to wait accordingly to avoid the outcomes of early planting.
It shall be recalled that recently the Min. for disaster & unpreparedness, also came out and warned farmers not to be proud of the current rains but instead to wait patiently .
Meanwhile, Kakooza has urged farmers to embark on tree planting more so fruit trees to act as wind breakers and also a food basket in the near by future.
He also reminded farmers not to sell off all their produces at a lower price set by business men claiming that they are taking their children back to schools noting that the end result may affect their standards of living.
