Konduga;

Konduga is a community in Borno State, Nigeria and the center of a Local Government Area of the same name about 25 km to the southeast of Maiduguri, situated on the north bank of the Ngadda River. The population of the Konduga Local Government Area is about 13,400. The people are in hunger and malnutrition.

14000

Challenges: Describe the current (2020) and the future (2050) challenges that your food system faces.

Current challenge;

Smallholder farmers in Nigeria remain underprivileged, lacking access to critical information required for their agricultural activities. We are often not able to produce sufficiently for our communities and often see limited incentives to produce more than what is needed for our own livelihood. This is primarily caused by the limited access to the inputs, support services, markets and credit, which would enable us to increase our production and sales volumes.

Probably future challenge;

Shortage of capital, land tenure,population of small farm holders  and fragmented  land,inadequate infrastructural facilities, poor attitudes toward adoption of new innovation and non- availability of transportation and storage means as problems.

 Diets; is the immediate needs of human therefore its paramount to improve plant and animals origin diet by supporting and enlightening the individual farmers on the farming of improved crop varieties and potential breed of animal.

Economic; in this aspect efficiency in use of herbicide, pesticide, rodenticide and other expences must be recorded.

Technology; is the advance knowledge of improved farming system in larger area which use to maximize the production.
