Here’s the list we spoke to:

1: Change of weather sometimes long drought or sometimes too much rain

2: Pests and disease, and the high prices of pest control mechanisms

3: Low yield in due to poor soils sometimes the fertilizer applied might not be favoring the nature of food crops planted

4: Low prices offered to offer during harvesting season

5: Poor storage

6: Poor packaging of products

7: Pack of market for their products

8: Poor transportation of food crops from farms to markets
