Kano farmers trained on seed multiplication

The Sasakawa Africa Association (SAA), in collaboration with the Kano State Government and the Islamic Development Bank, has conducted a pre-dry season training of seed multiplication for farmers.

According to Sasakawa’s senior crop productivity enhancement officer, Mr Benjamin Adamu Shamaki, the training is aimed at ensuring a healthy circulation of improved seeds to the farmers. He added that 20 seed multiplication farmers had been supported to breed improved rice and maize seeds.

He also said the project was targeting dry season farming activities in local governments that have access to irrigation facilities.

According to him, the project is for all the 44 local government areas of the state for an enhanced crop production, marketing and farm management techniques.

“We have 20 farmers from 20 local government areas with irrigation facilities. The project is aimed at all the 44 local governments in the state. We hope to continue with the other local governments when the wet season begins,’’ he said.

A beneficiary of the training from Warawa Local Government, Malam Rabi’u Bello, said he had learnt a lot of new innovations he believed would change not only the way he farmed but the whole farmers of Warawa irrigation, especially those dealing in rice production.
