BAFS handing over of Three (3) Vehicles to the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security

The Boosting Agriculture and Food Security (BAFS) project, today handed over three brand new off-road 4WD vehicles to the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MAF), to support the Ministry’s actions geared towards increasing domestic food production, thereby improving resilience to COVID-19 shocks in the medium term. One vehicle will provide support to the Crops Division of MAF in their fight against the Fall Armyworm-a worm with ability to destroy crops, and the other two to the Agricultural Engineering Division & Njala University, in their quest to do a comprehensive soil survey to determine the geospatial classification of Sierra Leone’s soils for crops suitability. Both projects implemented by the two MAF Divisions and Njala University are part of a comprehensive plan of actions supported by the European Union.
