Crops fail in Northern Bahr Al Ghazal

The authorities of Northern Bahr Al Ghazal state in South Sudan near the border with Sudan, have told Radio Tamazuj that the agricultural season has failed this year in many parts of the state.

Director of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry Garang Garang asserted that the failure could be attributed to many factors including a lack of rainfall in the area.

He also said the road closure between Sudan and South Sudan is affecting the situation, including a lack of fuel and delivery of goods to the area.
