They say this was because people in Gambia and i coast have come to depend on imported rice. Local rice production fell after the countries reduced farm supports and import taxes under free market reforms. That meant rice farmers were not only earning less, but facing greater competition from imports. Then , when the food crisis hit, the costs of foreign rice sharp up.

Suppose you eat rice everyday, but one day you go to the store and discover that the price is more than you can pay. That happened to millions of people two years ago at the hit of the world food prices.

Between Apr. 2007 and March of 2008, the price of rice doubled in many places. Economist blamed the prices on different causes including high energy costs, bad weather and the use of food crop lands by * production.

High food prices push more people in developing countries into poverty and hunger. Some researchers say people living in cities in west Africa may have suffered most of all. Geographers from three American colleges did a study that will appear in the proceedings of the national academy of sciences.

W.M of M College in Minnesota led the study. The team looked at thirty years worthy informations on food security and agricultural policy in Gambia, Ivory Coast and Morley.

Most of the research centered on rice and important crop in those three west Africa countries. The researchers say Gambia and Ivory Coast suffered more during the food c* than Morley did. They said this was because people in Gambia and the Ivory Coast had came to depend on imported rice. Local rice production failed after the countries reduced farm supports and import * under free markets reforms.That meant rice farmers were not only earning less but facing greater competition from imports. Then when the food c* hit, the cost of foreign rice shut up.

The researchers say Morley suffered less because it depended less on imported rice in part because of geography. Morley is not a coastal country with ports like Ivory Coast and Gambia.

L.S from Origin State University says after gaining independents African nations try to help farmers. Governments provided low cost seeds and fertilizers. They built processing * and roads to market, and they protected their markets with high * on imported food. But by the late 1970s and 1980s those countries no longer had money to help farmers. So they changed policies and tried another way to improve agriculture.

Governments and major lenders like the World Band and the International M* Fund turned to free market policies. We will talk more next week about how the researchers link that change to the effects of the recent food prices.

Between April of 2007 and March of 2008 the price of rice doubled in many places. Economists blame the prices on different causes, including high energy costs, bad weather and the use of food crop lands for bio-fewer production.

High food prices push more people in developing countries into poverty and hunger. Some researchers say people living in cities in West Africa may have suffered most of all. Geographers from 3 American colleges did the study that will appeal in the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Wecan Mozerly of Macalaster College in Minnesota led the study.

The team look at 30 years worth of information on food security and agriculture policy in Ganbia, Ivery Coast and Molly. Most of the research settled on rice and most important crops in those 3 West Africa countries.

The researchers say Ganbia and Ivery Coast suffered more during the food prices than Molly did. They say this was because people in Ganbia and Ivery Coast had come to depend on imported rice. Local rice production fail after the countries reduced farm supports and import taxes under 3 market reforms. That meant rice farmers were not only earning less but facing greater competition from imports. Then when the food prices heat the cost farm rice shut up.

The researchers say Molly suffered less because it depended less on imported rice in part because of geography. Molly is not a coastal country with ports like Ivery Coast and Ganbia.

Lourance Baker from Oreagan State university says, after gaining independence, African Nations tried to help farmers. Governments provided low cost seeds and fertilizers. They build processing meals and rots to market, and they protected their markets with high taxes on imported foods. But by the late 1970s and 1980s, those countries no longer had much money to help farmers. So they changed policies and tried another way to improve agriculture. Government sent major lenders like the World Bank and the international monitory fund turn to 3 market policies. We’ll talk more next week about how the researchers link that change to the affect of recent food prices.

And that’s VOA Special English Agriculture Report, written by Jefferlin Waten. I’m Steve Ember.
