The Southern African Development Community SADC director of Food Agriculture and Natural Resources, Domingos Gove warned on Monday that the drought could impact on food insecurity in the region.
Low levels of rainfall and precipitation in the last season have affected crops in the southern region of Africa, with drops in the output of around 23% (South Africa) and 34% (Zambia) – the main corn and cereal producers in the region.
Domingos Gove also called attention to various agricultural diseases, particularly those affecting bananas and corn, “that also affect farms in the area”.
As far as livestock husbandry was concerned, Domingos Gove said this was a “positive aspect” but warned of cross-border diseases.
“It is important that the SADC works as a regional block as these diseases easily move across borders and can have a great impact on the regional economy”, he said.Source: Lusa
