Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed said “summer wheat cultivation through irrigation has been promising thus far.”
“If we continue capitalizing on these gains, our wheat import substitution aspirations will be within reach,” he said in a tweet.
The Ministry of Agriculture recently told the Parliament that cultivation through irrigation this year will help the country to cut wheat import by more than half.
According to the Ministry, Ethiopia imports 17 million quintals of wheat annually.
