Must Try

The AGRA Kaduna State Consortium Project has engaged 300,000 farmers in 18 LGAs of the state as part of measures to increase food production.

The team leader of the project, Professor Chris Daudu, revealed this in an interview immediately after presenting an overview of the programme at NAERLS Zaria.

Professor Daudu noted that the whole idea of the project is to address issues of resilience most farmers face today.

He listed some of these challenges as low farming productivity, low income, climatic change, security, issues regarding planting, managing crops, as well as marketing.

The consortium is poised to provide support to the farmers in the above-mentioned areas in order to assist them in cultivating more crops.

Some of the interventions include establishing demonstration farms, providing improved seeds and fertilizers, and educating farmers on agro-economy.

The team leader said that at the end of the project, the farmers are not only expected to know improved agricultural practices, as well as the economic aspect of it, but the state will be able to feed itself.

He stressed that farmers will have access to improved seeds, access to fertilizers, and they’ll be able to get good knowledge on agro-economy.
