USAID FED Power Tillers Beneficiaries Boost Rice Production

first_imgLowland rice farmers in Liberia have limited access or no access to mechanized services wherein they have several activities in terms of brushing and land preparations that require hard labor and is cost intensive.Some beneficiaries of power tillers provided by the United States Agency for International Development Food and Enterprise Development (USAID-FED) are making headway in their respective operational counties.In an exclusive interview with the head of the Progressive Farmers, Sulu Zese, under the banner of Suamuah District Multi Purpose Corporative in Bong County, he said, through the power tiller his work has improved tremendously.He said he has so far been able to cultivate a little over 14hectares of rice in Bong County and hoped to increase cultivation of more hectares.“I highly appreciate USAID FED for the high level of support to farmers; today I’m able to improve my livelihood through this power tiller which means a lot to me.“Before the introduction of the program, I was using hard labor and little knowledge about making a large farm and many days I experienced pains,” Zeze explained. He disclosed that since he received his power tiller, work has been very easy and many of the farmers have also benefited.“We were asked to use it to help farmers who will call on me to work for them and so when they provide fuel we work for them,” he said.Another local farmer Madam Garmai Zayzay, who is now operating on 3 acres of land due to the help of the power tillers, expressed gratitude to USAID FED for promoting farming in rural areas.“Before, it took me more than a month to finish preparing my farm for production, but with the use of the machines it takes me less time to have my farm cultivated,” Zayzay, 29, said.She said the presence of the machines in the county has increased production. “We suffered greatly during the absence of this machine because we used to pay L$275 to get someone to help us brush our farm and each acre I used 14 persons which was very costly but thank God for the machine now we are able to speed up our process less than two days,” Madam Zayzay said with excitement.It may be recalled that USAID-FED in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture (MOA) provided 30 power tillers, costing US$189,000 to young entrepreneurs in Lofa, Nimba, Bong and Grand Bassa Counties under a cost sharing arrangement.The USAID FED program aims to reduce hunger and promote food security for Liberians through increased agricultural productivity and profitability in rice, cassava, vegetable and goat value chains. It is implemented in six counties: Bong, Nimba, Lofa, Grand Bassa, Margibi and Montserrado.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Flyers take second game of exhibition set with Fort Nelson 5-0

first_imgThe Yeti came out flying to start the first period trying to make amends for Friday’s lopsided 9-2 loss to the Flyers. Fort Nelson sent 13 shots on goaltender Jared Andersen, but he stood tall in the net turning them all aside. Flyers Head Coach Gerard Dicaire gave props to Fort Nelson for coming out of the gate hard but was happy how the Flyers played in the final 40 minutes.“They came out pretty hard. Our first period wasn’t very good. Credit to them: they came out, they were ready to play,” he explains. “Our guys got a little fancy right off the start. We came in and had a talk about playing our systems and our game plan and the second and third were a lot better.”Dicaire was particularly happy with how his defence responded after the first period of play.- Advertisement -“The first period they had 13 shots and they only had 16 the night before,” he says. “We talked about that so the rest of the game they ended up with 21 overall. That was a big discussion about keeping shots down. That was part of our goal this year.”Scoring in order for the Flyers were Arlo Hadland, Aaron Schepers, Adam Horst, Robbie Sidhu, and Clayton Bahm. The assists went to Jeff Shipton, who had two helpers, Payden Wongstedt, Darren Goulet, Brady Busche, and Robbie Sidhu. Fort St. John also outshot the Yeti 30-28, and will head to Fort Nelson in January of next year for another exhibition series. The Yeti will continue working at putting the necessary pieces together as they hope to join the North Peace Hockey League next season.Advertisement The Flyers will now continue with practices leading up to the regular season opener on Saturday night when the team hits the road to Grande Prairie.
