AWEIL, 16 November 2016 [Gurtong]-While giving his speech during the harvest launch of the farm, Ngong Akok said that his company will ensure that the markets receive enough supply of food items.

He appreciated the State government for providing security during the farming season which has led to a successful harvest.

“Companies which are operating must be supported not side pocket companies. We don’t get agricultural loans from the bank and you have seen today the results of our work. We want to call all the governments of different levels to assist us with agricultural inputs because this is important to improve agricultural produce” he said.

250 feddans of the sorghum Project in Chimel County of Aweil State was harvested last Friday.
SPLM representative who is also a Member of Parliament in Lol State, Joseph Akok Akol said the SPLM is doing its best to improve food security in the country.

“People do not understand about the natural factors, the in fluctuation of rainfall and generally climatic change; the so called global warming is beyond peoples’ minds and that is the cause of crops failure. Should government be seen contributing? In some cases like conflict yes it might contribute in small percentage, but Aweil has no fear of conflict yet there is adequate food” he said.

He called upon organizations that support agriculture to discourage importing food items but machineries to increase the food production in the country.

The Commissioner of Chimel, Wilson Bol Diing appreciated the Chief of general of staff, Lt Gen Paul Malong Awan for providing security along the roads and borders.

Mr. Chan Kuach Ngor the Assistant Manager of Aweil Rice Scheme said communities of Aweil State would have contributed more during the harvest but fell short due to natural disasters.

“I am appealing to those who lost their crops not to give up, continue to do more in the next agricultural year while encouraging farmers to continue with the spirit of increasing local production. The National Ministry of Agriculture is going to engage partners to provide seeds” he said.
