The Federal Government has provided training to 3,000 farmers across 12 states

Date:

The Agriculture For Food and Jobs Creation Programme, part of the National Poverty Reduction with Growth Scheme under the Federal Ministry of Budget and National Planning, has successfully trained and empowered 3,000 vulnerable farmers across 12 states in the South-West and South-South regions.

The initiative, led by the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security, provided farm inputs such as knapsack sprayers, organic fertilizers, herbicides, maize and rice seeds, as well as other essentials like day-old chicks for poultry farmers and feeds for fish farmers.

The ultimate goal is to lift these farmers out of poverty by improving productivity through modern agricultural technologies.

 

Resource persons from federal universities imparted knowledge on good agricultural practices to equip the farmers for successful commercial ventures.

 

Professor Tajudeen Bameke emphasized the importance of adding value to products for increased profitability.
