The leader of the United Democratic Party (UDP), Ousainu Darboe last Sunday visited a local farm in Tubakuta owned by a Gambian US-based civil servant.
The 25-hectare farm located in the outskirts of Tubakota is one of the biggest farm in the area motivated to make Gambia a food self-sufficient country.
Agriculture is the most important sector of the Gambian economy, contributing 32% of the gross domestic product, providing employment and income for 80% of the population, and accounting for 70% of the country’s foreign exchange earnings.
