Farmers in Nasarawa Get Subsidised Farm Inputs

 

More than 500 farmers in Nasarawa have received subsidised farming inputs to support food production, food sufficiency and security in the state.

Vintor and Sons Global Enterprises, a private firm that subsidised the items for the farmers, said the support was aimed at empowering low income farmers to reduce hunger and aid food security in the state.

The Project Director of the organisation, Vincent Iyev, who donated the items on behalf of the company on Sunday, in Lafia, disclosed that the organisation gave the farm inputs to the farmers at a subsidised rate of 20 percent of the prices.

Among the items subsidized for the farmers include; fertiliser, sprayers, rain boots, raincoats, hand gloves and others and the farmers were to pay back the money for the items after harvest.

He said; “We are training farmers on the best modern farming techniques and diagnostic survey to identify agricultural problems; and giving tractors to them on hire, also at a subsidised rate,”

The Project Director said the group is targeting 1000 farmers each in Nasarawa, Benue and Taraba states, as well the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), to benefit from the scheme and appealed to the Nasarawa State Government to partner and support the group in the scheme, aimed at helping farmers in the state grow.

Adamu also appealed to other spirited individuals and groups to support agricultural development in the country.
