As agricultural season continues in many parts of South Sudan, Palotaka women are raising concerns that men are not helping them in farming activities.
 
They say bigger percentage of garden work has been left to women as they struggle to care for their families, Radio Emmanuel reports.
 
In a seed fare organized by Caritas Luxembourg and FAO at Palotaka last week, women say most people engaged in the farming are female.
 
They complain, most men do not help women in the farming which is the main livelihood for the people in the area.
 
Christine Abalo tells Radio Emmanuel that most farmers in the area have formed working groups for effective production.
 
Majority of group members are women as most men are claimed to have engaged in alcohol consumption, she discloses.
 
Another farmer Anne Aloo Paulino says most men spend their time in the market leaving the work to women.
 
Calling for her fellow women to put more efforts in agriculture to uplift their families, Aloo who is a widow says, she is now capable of paying her children in school from her farming business.
 
Meanwhile, Ayaci County Commissioner Charles Okumu confirms that women have gone beyond men as they struggle to care for their families.
 
Palotaka is among the food basket areas in Torit State in the Eastern Equatoria region.
 
Torit government set Friday as agricultural day to help boost food production in the state.
