Dry conditions affect research work in Tanzania

By Bonventure Mtalimbo

Not only farmers suffer from droughts, but researchers are equally hit by dry weather.

This was said by researchers from the Sokoine University of Agriculture when speaking to The Express last week.

Researchers have not been able to collect data from the field as crops have been destroyed by droughts which hit the country.

For the scientists, it has meant a great loss and they urged the government to address the problem and look at appropriate means of solving the problems in the coming years.

Developing irrigation is one step forward they argued and cautioned the continued reliance on rain fed agriculture.

They added that researchers and stakeholders in the agricultural sector can strengthen social economics in their research agenda. Researchers must be able to carry out quality research.
