Nigeria: Bauchi Takes Proactive Measures to Ensure Bumper Harvest

The Bauchi State ministry of agriculture says it has planned to provide inputs to farmers across the state to ensure the COVID-19 pandemic does not affect their productivity. The State Commissioner of Agriculture, Pharmacist Sama’ila Burga and the General Manager, Bauchi State Agricultural Supply Company, Ibrahim Yusha’u Isah disclosed this in an interview with reporters in Bauchi.

They said the government has provided varieties of seeds, herbicides, insecticides and organic fertiliser at its stores across the 20 local government areas. This is to ensure that farmers could continue with their farming even if there is a lock down.

They advised farmers to be proactive by preparing their land and looking out for genuine seeds and other inputs.
