Namibia is expecting an above average grain harvest of 140,000 tons and will continue tapping from partners to avert hunger, the government said Thursday.
Executive director in the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Land Reform Percy Misika said they expect a harvest of 70,000 tons of maize and about 60,000 tons of sorghum, which are Namibia’s staple food.
Misika added that the government will continue to work with finding partners in agriculture including Food and Agriculture Organization, China and the United Nations.
“We have projects in the Kunene region where farmers were being assisted by development partners plus government and these will continue to be taken care of. We also believe our partners will be keen to continue working with us,” he said.
“We might be in a difficult time but things will get better,” he said. Enditem
