Anambra Agric Agency Advises Farmers On Use Of Herbicides

By Ifeoma Aka

Enugu   –     Mr Onyeme Nwodo, Programme Manager, Enugu State Agricultural Development Programme (ENADP), has advised farmers to use herbicides for weeding and bush clearing instead of bush burning.

Nwodo told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu on Sunday that the use of herbicide improves soil nutrient while bush burning scorch the soil nutrient.

He said that the state government had purchased quality herbicides that could kill all the weeds and grasses in the farm completely.

Nwodo said that ENADP was collaborating with local governments to sensitise the farmers on proper way of preparing land for farming.

 “We have arranged with the Ministry of Agriculture and Natural Resources to make sure that the tractors are ready for land preparation.

“We have also, through the assistance of the governor, purchased fertilisers which will be distributed farmers,” Nwodo said.
