Sokoto –  The Sokoto State Agricultural Development Project (ADP) says plans are underway to introduce a new sustainable farming technique to farmers, in efforts to boost agricultural production in the state.

The Coordinator of the ADP, Alhaji Lawal Abubakar, said this on Monday while speaking with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Sokoto.

“In agriculture, sustainability is a complex idea with many facets, including the economic aspect. The social facet of agriculture entails fair dealings with workers and beneficial relationship with the community and environment,’’ he said.

Abubakar said that environmental sustainability factor in agriculture involved good stewardship in relation to the natural systems and resources which farms relied on.

“This involves building and maintaining healthy soils, managing water wisely as well as minimising air, water and climate pollution.’’

He urged farmers in the state to embrace the sustainable farming technique in order to boost their productivity.

Abubakar said that the use of technology was deemed appropriate, while considering the application of the new farming technique.

“In Africa, only eight countries, including Nigeria, are selected to test the new method, while only Sokoto, Kebbi, Kano and Jigawa states are to benefit from the project.

“In Sokoto State, three local governments areas — Yabo, Wammako, and Gwadabawa — are chosen for the project,” he added. (NAN)
