As the rains begin, farmers are busy preparing and planting. It appears that many crops are going to have some challenges due to the changes in climatic conditions. Fortunately, the diversity of crops and activities provide a safety net for many rural dwellers. Here we see oil palm, mango, sugar cane, maize, rice and other crops all in a relatively compact area. May it be a good season for our farmers, for they work hard to nourish those of us who do not give a second thought to where our daily sustenance originates. Photo Credit: WAASPS Ltd.
