Must Try

The Kano State Agro-pastoral Development Project (KSADP) is participating in the National Agricultural Show to increase the visibility of its wide array of projects and services aimed at transforming the economy of Kano state by developing agro-pastoral production systems.

The National Agricultural Show is one of the largest agricultural events in Nigeria, bringing together farmers, agribusinesses, policymakers, researchers, and other stakeholders. It provides an opportunity for exhibitors to showcase their products, services, and the latest agricultural technologies.

The Agricultural Show is organized by the National Agricultural Foundation, the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, and the All Farmers Association of Nigeria and is hosted in Karu, Nassarawa state, from 20th to 24th November 2023.

At the event, declared open by the Minister of Agriculture, Senator Abubakar Kyari, the Kano State Agro-pastoral Development Project (KSADP), funded by the Islamic Development Bank and the Lives and Livelihood Fund (LLF), showcased some of its achievements, including the flagship Dansoshiya Grazing Reserve Development Project, which has reached an appreciable level of completion.

Visitors from all over Nigeria also used the occasion to inspect prototypes of various projects executed by KSADP, including 100 milk collection centers, 20 slaughterhouses, five livestock markets, Dawanau International Grains Market infrastructure, and the Commercial large-scale fodder production project at the project’s stand.

Abdullahi Isyaku Raba, KSADP’s Crops Specialist, representing the Project Coordinator, Ibrahim Garba Muhammad, explained that the project’s interventions in the crops and legumes value chains, as well as the livestock sector, will impact 1.2 million peasant farmers and pastoralists, pointing out that the results have begun to manifest.

“One of our major interventions, the renovation of Watari dam infrastructure, and the expansion of the Watari Irrigation Scheme by 1,005 hectares, is a giant step towards improving food and nutrition security in Kano, in addition to creating thousands of jobs,” he said.

“The Watari project and all the projects we have done or are doing, with the support of the Kano state government, such as the Gwale Vet Reference Laboratory, the renovation and upgrade of the Kadawa Animal Insemination Center, the construction of grains and crop residue aggregation centers, rural access roads construction, as well as livestock fattening and reproduction schemes, among several interventions, are geared towards helping reduce poverty, raise incomes, and enhance food security.”
