Seeding Hope for Smallholder Farmers in Senegal

Report
World Bank

STORY HIGHLIGHTS

  • A lack of rainfall during Senegal’s planting season has led to withered crops and low yields, obliging farmers to reseed in an effort to recover their losses

  • An emergency program initiated by the World Bank’s West African Agricultural Productivity Program is providing one-time subsidies on the sale of almost 2,000 tons of certified maize, millet, and sorghum seeds

  • The subsidized seeds are guaranteed to produce higher yields, be more drought resistant, and have shorter maturity cycles

Mauritania Price Bulletin September 2014

Local rice and sorghum are the most consumed food products by poor households in Mauritania followed by imported wheat which is a substitute that these households turn to the most. Local rice is grown in the river valley (in the southern regions of Trarza, Brakna, Gorgol and Guidimakha). Sorghum is produced in all areas of production (rainfed) and in flood-recession areas. However, a significant portion is imported from Mali and Senegal. Mauritania depends greatly on food imports (70% in a good agricultural year and 85% in a bad year) than on internal production.
