Farmers in the riverine area of Bardera district have started replanting their fields after the El Nino floods washed away all their crops towards the end of last year. 

At least 9,000 hectares have been planted with various fruits, vegetables as well as cereal grains for food production. They expect to harvest in March.

Radio Ergo’s local correspondent Ahmed Omar Salihi spoke to some of the farming families at work. They told him they were trying to recover from the devastation and despair they had suffered when the Juba river washed everything away last November. Many people were displaced at the height of the flooding.
