FMA, Abia ADP Empower Over 90 Rice Farmers

The Federal Ministry of Agriculture and the Abia State Agriculture Development Project, yesterday, distributed improved rice seeds and fertilizer to over 90 rice farmers in the state.

The ministry and the project had earlier trained the farmers on climate-resistance practices in yam, cassava, and rice production.

The project’s acting manager, Nnenna Uche, handing over the items to the farmers in Umuahia, the state capital, said the gesture is aimed at improving the crop yield in the state.

Advising them to make judicious use of the items to improve their means of livelihood, she lauded the ministry for partnering the project to train and empower farmers in the state.

Uche also appreciated the governor, Alex Otti for finding her capable of naming the project, adding that under her watch it would deliver on its mandate successfully.

In their respective responses, some of the beneficiaries, Victoria Nathaniel, Eric Evulobi, and Moses Chikere assured that they would put the items to proper use.

They also commended both the ministry and the project for the training which they said had widened their knowledge of modern rice farming.
