The continued grazing of livestock on farms in the area east of the South Darfur capital of Nyala has destroyed vast tracts of cultivated land.

Several farmers reported to Radio Dabanga that they lost their crops in the area of Jumeiza, Humeida, Um Tireina, Kumisli, Taaisha and Baashom.

Acres planted with millet, sorghum, sesame, black-eyed beans, okra, cucumbers, and watermelons were destroyed. The losses are estimated at thousands of Sudanese pounds.

The farmers have called upon the South Darfur and Sudanese authorities to intervene and protect them and the remainders of their crops.
