Nassarawa farmers urge govt. to ensure timely distribution of fertilisers


 
 
 
 
 
Some farmers in Nasarawa State have appealed to the government at all level to ensure early distribution of fertilisers and other farm inputs to farmers in order to boost their productivity.

The farmers made the appeal on Tuesday in Toto, Toto Local Government Area of the state.

They said that the timely distribution of fertilisers to farmers would facilitate efforts to improve food production and boost food security in the state and the country at large.

One of the farmers, Mr. Mohammed Haruna, said that the importance of early distribution of fertilisers to farmers could never be over-emphasised, particularly in efforts to enhance the country’s development.

“As we are all aware, no society can survive without agriculture; farming is the major source of livelihood to many members of our society.

“Agriculture will not only provide food, fight poverty, hunger and unemployment but it will also improve the revenue base of Nigeria and the living standards of its citizens, while boosting the country’s socio-economic development.

“For farmers in the state to have bumper harvests in the 2017 farming season, I hereby appeal to the state government to ensure early and timely distribution of fertilisers and other inputs to the farmers,’’ he said.

Another farmer, Samson Audu, who noted that most farmers in the state were subsistent farmers, urged the government at all level to make available fertilisers to them at affordable prices in order to assuage their plight.

He also called for the early and timely distribution of fertilisers and other inputs to the farmers.

He, however, commended Gov. Tanko Al-Makura for providing the farmers with fertilisers at subsidised rates in the 2016 cropping season.

Mr. Ibrahim Dauda, a farmer, also urged the government to promptly provide fertilisers and other farm inputs to farmers at affordable prices so as to boost food production in the state and the country at large.
