VP Mpango urges TARI to bring avocado & pomegranate cultivation to Dodoma

Tanzanian Vice President Dr Philip Mpango has tasked the Tanzania Agricultural Research Institute (TARI) to undertake a special research program to promote cultivation of pomegranate fruits and avocado in Dodoma Region.

According to Mpango, the region's weather and soil are potential for cultivation of the two fruit trees, insisting on the state-owned agro research institute to focus on improving cultivation of the cash crops.

He was concerned that cultivation of grapes is a bit expensive hence most of the farmers cannot afford, challenging TARI to mull over promoting other cash crops to help get farmers out of poverty and stimulate the region's economy.
