Farmer’s Information and Field Day: Road to ensuring high

yields

The Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry in collaboration with partners including the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), organized the Farmer’s Field Day in April 2017. The main purpose of the event was to evaluate and select improved varieties of cowpea, pearl millet and sorghum which will officially be released in 2017. The farmers session ran under the project “Developing High Yielding and Drought Resistant Pearl Millet, Sorghum Bicolor, and Cowpea”. The objective of the project is to apply mutation induction to develop new mutant lines and/or mutant varieties with high yielding and enhanced tolerance to drought conditions. The project is set to contribute to the enhancement of national capacity as well as increase availability of elite genetics resources for the improvement of the selected crop. FAO Namibia
