With the aim of raising awareness among Bu-rundians about agricul-tural innovation, the President of the Republic of Burundi His Excellency Evariste Ndayishimiye practices the intensive and modern agriculture in order to increase the agricultural pro-duction and invests in off-season agri-culture, associated to cattle breeding in its agricultural areas located on Bi-tare locality in Bugenda commune and on Murayi locality in Giheta commune. The Head of State, who works hard for being a model in the agricultural revo-lution in Burundi, has drilled the bore-holes to obtain water, and uses the watering guns to irrigate his fields dur-ing the dry season. In order to pro-duce a lot and with few resources, the President of the Republic is currently seeking to switch to the mechanized agriculture. However, the Head of State has the agricultural machines and tools at his disposal such as the wheel hoes, the manual hoes, the planters and the transplanters which, although manual, significantly reduce the number of workers and the dura-tion of the work. In that same Bugendana farm, Mr.Prosper Nsengiyumva in charge monitoring the tomatoes grown in the greenhouses on 9 acres during the dry season, indicates that the tech-nique is very advantageous with re-gard to the production and protection of the crop against the climatic haz-ards. That agricultural technician specifies that the tomato field which extends over 9 ares will be able to produce at least 50 tons of tomatoes. He also revealed that the Head of State has a project of transforming those fruit tomatoes into the canned tomatoes.
