I am looking forward for the government’s inputs on assisting the farmers with farming equipments to make farming activities attractive and interest to the youth”, he pleaded.
In addition, he added that, the agric officers always stay in their offices giving directions but should rather take a step to roam around the farmers to assure them of the betterment of the farming activities.
