Challenges in agriculture facing people in area with single rain season per year

In mwanza Tanzania  the big agricultural challenge is that there is only one rain season and the selection of crops is very tough job to the farmers because most of the crops which sustain drought like millet are not given priority by the farmers due cultural backgrounds, however there are no adequate rivers or any water sources which are perrenial, due to food insecurity mostly in these areas to the small farmers how to go about this situation.

If there are researches to be done on the more adaptive crops to the drought , then should be done to improve the yoeld of the farmers and hence food security.
