The demonstration of 20 Steps sesame production techniques in the Northwest Ethiopia is progressing very well. Several demonstration plots, in particular, in Qura, Metema, Tach Armachio and Tegede woredas of North Gondar zone and Tsegede and Wolkaiet Woredas of Western Tigray zone are in good shape. Most sesame plots are in their flowering stages. In Kafta Humera and West Armachiho woredas the rain started very late. This affects some demonstration plots. Farmers were forced to reseed their sesame fields, some even for the third times. Despite this, the sesame plantations seem good at present.
