Faruq-Na’abu said the gesture done, in collaboration with the Japan International Agency (JICA), was to part of the inputs donated to 1,500 farmers across 10 states in the country.
According to him, other items include four bags of NPK fertilizer, two bags of Urea fertiliser, one litre of soil amender, four litres of pesticide and five litres of pre-planting and post-emergence herbicides.
He added that the support was in line with Federal Government’s commitment towards enhancing agricultural development for food security and job creation.
Faruk-Na’abu urged benefiting farmers to make judicious use of the inputs as well as support their farming communities. (NAN)
