Operation wealth Creation to supply Crop Varieties according to ecological zone
Government has resolved to change the strategy of rolling out Operation Wealth Creation, with farmers now going to be allowed to select what to grow provided it is aligned with the ecological zone.
The program has for a long time come under criticism for giving out inappropriate crop varieties to wrong groups and failing to zone depending on which crops can work best where.
In a speech delivered for him by the coordinator Operation Wealth Creation in Teso , Lt. Gen. Angina, the chief coordinator says farmers will now be required to grow or cultivate crops based on the soils in the area.
He said this at a thanks giving ceremony of the State Minister for Disaster, Musa Ecweru in Amuria District
