Farmers in the Southern part of the country have been urged to sow early maturing crops during this rainy season.

“Soon after the end of October, we would be out of the rainy season. Crops that are planted have only about a month to grow.”

Mr. Tetteh Portuphy, Senior Meteorologist at the Ghana Meteorological Agency, told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in an interview in Accra on Wednesday.

He cautioned that people should de-silt choked gutters and drains to ensure that flood waters were not interrupted.

“Where gutters and drains are choked, a 60 millimeter rainfall could easily cause flooding,” said the Senior Meteorologist.

Southern Ghana, is currently experiencing its minor rainy season.
