WILD BOARS RAVAGE MAIZE IN NANGKOR
The wild boars frequent the maize fields in the village and sometimes damage almost half of the crop.
With maize almost ready for harvest, farmers can be seen guarding their fields at night around this time of the year. Despite this, a farmer lost almost a half of his maize crop to the wild boars recently.
“We work really hard. We have to hire power tillers, which costs us Nu 2000 per day, to prepare the fields for maize plantation. We also have to hire workers and pay Nu 4000 in charges to them. After all these hard work, it is sad when the wild boars leave us with very little to reap,” Langten from Nangkor said.
