2020-2021 agricultural campaign: 15,000 irrigation kits will be distributed starting from November

(Togo First) - In the 2020-2021 agricultural campaign, the State will distribute 15,000 irrigation kits starting from November this year. This should guarantee food and nutritional security for rural households, by considerably boosting the country’s agricultural output. 

The equipment should indeed enable rural farmers cultivate their crops off-season. Its provision falls under the government’s Covid-19 response launched when the pandemic broke out in the country.

This response is currently being revised by the authorities to take into account current needs arising in various sectors, including agriculture. In effect, new amendments to the response aim mostly at boosting farmers’ earnings, improving their access to massive input kits and improving their living standards. 

Let’s recall that Togo eyes for the current agricultural campaign the following outputs: around two million tons of corn, over 330,000 tons of rice, nearly 140,000 t of soybeans and 225,000 t of cotton. 

Towards achieving these goals, a digital platform was set with some private firms (selected following a tender) to efficiently support farmers in the process.
