While the price of Maize remained at 170,000:00 per ton in September, Soya jumped to 125,000:00 with feeds at 3600

In October, while the farmers were glad of a small decrease in Maize to 152,000:00/ ton, Soya rose again to 150,000:00/ton, Commercial Feeds then was 3959:00

As at today, Maize is 145,000:00, Soya 215,000:00 and Commercial Feeds at 4,400:00 while the market is already resisting a tray of egg for above 1000.

Intelligence gatherings on issues around price increases in maize and soya reveals

  • Hoarding of the Maize and Soya by Merchants thereby causing artificial scarcity
  • Export of processed Soya Bean Meal by some millers.
  • Poor harvest due to low quality seeds, climate change, insecurity in the

grains producing zones amongst other factors.

PANOG is calling on the Federal Government of Nigeria through the Ministry of Agriculture for a quick intervention in the following areas.

  • Immediate ban on the export of processed Soyabeans and Soya Bean Meal until local consumption is sustained and guaranteed
  • Approve Importation of Animal Feed Grade Grains to cushion effect of the feed crisis
  • The CBN through its Development Finance Department to facilitate a working relationship between the producers (grain farmers) and the consumers (poultry farmers) to check the profiteering tendencies of the merchants
  • Intensify efforts on dry season farming to improve production capacity while not neglecting the quality of the seed to ensure high yield to reduce high cost of production per hectare.

PANOG is also using this medium to call on the Commercial Feeds Millers to show some level of consideration in their pricing as the survival of the Poultry Farmers is directly related to the continued existence of the Millers.
