Ndop Rice

Helping the rice farmers in Ngoketunjia, Cameroon

2009 has witness an increase in the the price of paddy rice in the Ngoketunjia Division as compared to 2008.
A bag of 100kg of paddy rice in 2008 was sold at 10000frs cfa,early this year 2009 a bag of 100kg is selling at 15 to 18000frs.
The production of rice in the area keep on reducing as farmers lack financial and technical assistance to increase the rice production within the Division.
It is evident that the price will keep on rising as more people has taken rice to be one of the main stable food and cash crop.
If nothing is done rice in future will only be eaten by rich people as if was in the early 70s where most home eat rice only on Chrismas days
