The sun rises over the Nile and the farm lands lining the river
Agriculture is one of the mainstays of the Sudan. There is wheat, sugar and livestock farming in the South and when we travel North we see goat, sheep, cattle and camel farms. The small farmer also farms with mainly vegetables along the Nile in Khartoum. When the Nile floods its banks every year in July, August and half of September, it provides natural fertilizer for the lands. When the water recedes, the silt remains. The farmer brings his oxen and plough and prepares for next season. Above photo shows land which is awaiting the farmer.
