She added that the company plans to introduce the findings of research trials and cultivation of a heat-tolerant durum wheat variety which is been cultivated by the company in Senegal to Nigeria.

She added that Crown Flour Mill, through FMAN’s wheat development programme, targeted smallholder wheat farmers and other players in the wheat production value chain and downstream sector, which is aimed at boosting the quantity and quality of local wheat production.

The company’s Wheat Development Programme Officer, Rauda Musa Umar, said that the company will soon be embarking on research, seed trials and training in modern agricultural practices in a block farming pilot project as plans are at an advanced stage to commit Kano State to make land available for the project.
