…as farmers target 5 million metric tons

 

Pour hundred thousand sorghum famers are to be mobilized for this year’s wet season farming.

National Association of Sorghum Producers, Processors and Marketers of Nigeria (NASPPAM) made this known in a communiqué issued and signed by its National President, Alhaji Muhammad Babayo-Maina and Publicity Secretary, Dr Sani Hamza, in Abuja.

It explained that the resolutions were part of the decisions at the end of the inaugural meeting of the newly elected national officers of the association in Abuja.

According to the communiqué, the association is targeting the production of sorghum in over two million hectares with a production output of about five million metric tons.

“We are going to mobilise 400, 000 farmers for the cultivation of sorghum crop in this 2019 farming season.

“Sorghum is a common crop in the Northern States of the country; states in other parts are also encouraged to increase the participation of farmers and deployment of more hectares.

“The association is putting necessary machinery in place to ensure that farmers participate and benefit from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN)’s Anchor Borrowers’ Programme,” it said.

It directed States and Local Government Chapters to forward details of farmers registered for the programme to national secretariat before May 25.
