Mar 25, 2022

KAYANZA March 25th (ABP) – The Dutabarane organization, through its project called “Dukore 2”, delivered inputs and agricultural equipment on Friday March 18, 2022 to agro-pastoralists and agricultural supervisors in Muruta commune of Kayanza province (north of Burundi).

According to the coordinator of that organization, Mr. Eric Makarakiza, the wheat seeds distributed were composed of 1,300 tons while the fertilizers are made of 900 kilograms of Imbura type and 650 kg of Bagara type.

The supervisors of stockbreeders, farmers and community loan and savings groups have benefited from 24 bicycles and boots.

Mr. Makarakiza testified that the distribution of those agricultural materials and inputs falls within the framework of supporting the people. He asked the beneficiaries of the wheat seeds to sow them according to the agricultural techniques they learned.

On the side of the administration, the chief of staff in the office of the governor of Kayanza, Mr. Vianney Ndikumana, positively appreciated the achievements of the Dukore 2 project (2nd phase) because, according to him, the project supports the government in the agro-pastoral sector both in awareness-raising and in the supply of agricultural equipment. He added the said project aligns with the goal of the Head of State who has dedicated this year 2022 to agriculture.

Since the same project is implemented in the only commune of Muruta, Mr. Ndikumana asked that it be extended to other communes so that the development reaches the whole province.

The head of the training and extension service in the provincial office of Environment, Agriculture and Livestock, Mr. Cyrille Manirakiza, urged the beneficiaries of bicycles, wheat seeds and fertilizers to use them better and to regularly monitor their fields with a view to increasing production.

On the side of the beneficiaries, it was a feeling of satisfaction. They therefore asked other organizations to follow suit in order to increase production.
