Kassena-Nankana West – Farmers in Bembisi seek support to expand dry season gardens

Farmers in Bembisi, in the Kassena-Nankana West District of the Upper East Region, are asking for support to help them scale up their food production.

The Bembisi community is made up of a population of over 2,000 residents. Many of the residents are farmers who engage in dry-season farming for commercial and subsistence purposes.

While the dry season allows farmers to make ends meet, the lack of an easier source of water means that farmers are unable to scale up their production. The farmers currently rely on hand-dug wells to water their farms.

When the Assembly Member for the area, Charles Anyungba, spoke to Mark Smith on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show, he was worried that the existing dam in the community had not received any major rehabilitation work.

“If there is help from the government to get a very big source of water for the community, then their scale of production would also increase. We did not benefit from the 1V1D. We already have our own dam that needs desilting to enable it to contain more water, but that has not been done.”

The Assembly Member for the Bembisi electoral area said all pleas have fallen on deaf ears.
