Disclosing this to Daily Trust in Funtua, a cotton farmer and Chairman Gwaigwaye Cotton Farmers Cooperative Society, Alhaji Lawal Tsoho, said it is frustrating that farmers hardly get three tonnes of cotton from a farm that was giving him five tonnes 10 years ago.“Farmers here prefer to cultivate crops that will give them more yield than cotton because cotton nowadays has been a source of frustration to farmers as, despite the application of adequate fertilizer and pesticide, the yield has continued to decline,” Alhaji Lawal said.
