It would be an absolute travesty and ecological disaster if the first world, primarily white, so-called civilized people, succeed in convincing a significant proportion of the t’ef farmers of Ethiopia to abandon t’ef and grow wheat instead. Because nearly every one of the diaspora in north america and europe MUST have their daily injera, t’ef flour has become the number one export and cash crop for the country. T’ef is entirely immune to Ug99 and other wheat fungi and pests which could at any moment mutate and spread to wipe out all human beings reliant upon wheat in their daily diet. God made diversity and white people are utter fools to try to destroy it.

John Tucker!

It is a very good news for our farmers. Unlike the imbecile John Tucker, wheat has been the 5th cash crops until the governments banned due to food shortage (famine) in Ethiopia. And teff was not in the list. If teff is changed itself to cash crops then i dont see the problem with it. Dollar is dollar.

When some whites working day and night on hope of the future and how to make a change for Africa.

People like Almariam are wishing and dreaming famine to happen in Ethiopia in the coming years.

if those educated diaspora who are wasting time by writing rubbish the last 21 yrs spend one hour a day thinking a solution how the farmer can be better of with new technology we would haven’t been where we are now.

but most of them the run away experts choose to criticise the people who trying there best to win in there life back home.

I wish to see the day every one asking himself what did i do to my country than talking and blaming every one else except himself for all problem that happening back home.

This article is to cover up the upcoming massive famine. Don’t believe it. They are still telling us 11% growith, etc while people are starving. By now we must realize their lies.

There is a serious concern for food shortage even for the city dwellers as the price of food is increasing and aimed for export. I think most of Ethiopian highland such as Gojam, Arsi, Bali are suitable for the production of wheat but farmers should come together introduce mechanized agriculture in order to enhance productitivty and minimize cost of production. The use of oxen farm is not reliable as it takes too much energy and also cost us time.The harvesting of the wheat also should utilize modern machinery such as combiners, storage facilities, mills. The one advantage is that we can process all the food so as to create more jobs and also increase our income. The processing should not be stopped at that point we should introduced factories which produce cookies, pastas, and other products solely for the export.

Improving the packaging technology also help in utilizing every resource and increasing revenue. Packaging industry will help us even to market perishable goods such as tomato, fruits, and vegetables.

This will also enhance food security by preserving some of the consumables for the seasons where the fruits, or vegetables is low.

Bando ,for your Information foreigners ,specially whites ,are not working days and nights to feed Africa .On the contrary on how to make moneys on the African farmers submitted to their laws and wills .Better you turn ten times your tongue in your mouth .We invite you to meditate on the Agricultural problem of countries like Malawi ,after accepting Monsato
Seeds offered by this firm for FREE to the paysants finished by having the worst food shortage .GMOs and Land Leasing are certainly not the solutions to resolve the FAMINE problems .On the contrary let the Ethiopian Farmers cultivate their own lands without state and local
authorities pressures .It’s only on this condition that they shall have the rights to develop their own products and can feed they ,their families and the country as the whole .

No one doubts the potential these countries have. The problem as usual is lack of the right policy and good governance. The leaders, including the so called opposition, are short sighted and can’t think of anything but securing their political power.It’s a shame that 99.9% of the farmers still use medieval farm tools.

What is new? Everybody knows Ethiopia/Africa has massive POTENTIAL in agriculture, potential bread baskets & can produce just about anything, be it wheat, teff, fruits, cash crops etc. So?

Potential & action/tangibility are as far apart as planet earth and Pluto. Quit talking & get thinking folks.
