Farms of Garissa

bour-algy-01-07-06_3694.jpgThis is just to give Theresia an idea of what kind of crops are grown in our area. The farms are mainly along the Tana River which is the only source of permanent water. NO major large scale farming are carried out here but small irrigation based cultivations( an example is the sweet melons farm shown in the picture above). Many fruits do well here. Some of the major ones include Mangoes, tomatoes, melons, pawpaw,quavas, bananas, orages. Other common crops include maize and canes.
