It is important for Nigeria to adequately make the most of the dry season farming programme which the nation has heavily invested in.
Considering the food shortage challenge facing the nation, the production of rice, wheat, and other food products must be upscaled.
This may be the reason farmers are getting exceptional treatment from government and international organsations.
The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) has collaborated with the federal government to distribute over ₦40 million agricultural inputs to Enugu farmers.
This was done to mark the commencement of the 2023/2024 dry season farming under the IFAD-Value Chain Development Programme programme.
The distributed items include NPK fertilisers, Urea, rice seeds, selective and non-selective chemicals, solar panels, water pumps, knapsack sprayers, transplanters, and weighing scales, among others.
