The Municipality and its surroundings have good climate for the growth of a wide range of agricultural products. Apart from cotton and sunflower which are prepared for export, no other crops are exported directly from the region.
As we are operating in a free economy, we are calling upon individuals, groups, companies and cooperative organizations to come and venture in the exportation of the region’s agricultural produce to the outside markets.
Currently the Municipality has:
Legumes (beans, G/nuts, Soya beans)
Sunflower and simsim
Mangoes, oranges, and other fruits
Rice, millet and sorghum
Problems facing this sector
Inadequate funding for planned intervention
Poor production methods and technologies
Prevalence of diseases and pests
inaccessibility of inputs by the farmers
