"Too Much Sun. Crops Are Dying," Mpigi

From Mpigi district comes a report that that farmers’ crops are dying due to the current scathingly hot season. Betty Jingo, who sent this report says that she planted 3 acres of maize this season but her crops started drying even before they fruited. “Even the ones that fruited are still suffering under the sun. In a good harvest, I would get upto 3000 kgs from my maize but this time I don’t think I will get even as much as 1000kgs,” she told News-Hapa.
