MINNA – Mr Sunday Edibor, the Regional Director of Agriculture, North Central Zone, has predicted bumper harvest for farmers in the area in view of easy access to farm inputs.
Edibor made the prediction in Minna on Wednesday while interacting with journalists.
“There will be a bumper harvest in the North Central Zone this 2014 farming season because the Federal Government has made it easy for farmers to redeem farm inputs such as fertiliser and improved seeds.’’
Edibor said that the Federal Government’s collaboration with private investors had made access to input easier and affordable.[eap_ad_2]
“The introduction of the private partners to enable farmers to get their inputs has been a huge success and we will continue to improve on it.’’
The regional director said the inauguration of the largest rice mill in Doma, Nasarawa State, by President Goodluck Jonathan would trigger the export of the commodity.
“The Olam Integrated Rice Mill in Doma, Nasarawa State, will definitely boost the economy of people leaving in that place and encourage local and foreign export of the commodity.
“More of such laudable industries are required in the economy by dedicated leaders to move the nation’s economy to another height,’’ he said. (NAN)[eap_ad_3]
