The Nigerian Government has supported 210 farmers affected by the recent flood in Kaduna State with seeds and other farm inputs.
While distributing the inputs to the farmers, an Assistant Director in the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Mrs Omotosho Agbani, said the gesture was in response to the plight of the farmers affected by the 2022 flood and a quick intervention strategy to enable them to go into irrigation.
The items presented to the farmers include tomato seeds, onions, vegetables, fruits, hibiscus seeds and items for beekeepers.
“We want the farmers to take advantage of the irrigation season and plant,” she said.
The official said that the 2022 flood had caused hardships for farmers and displaced 1.4 million people nationwide.
She stated that apart from the deaths recorded and the destruction of homes and infrastructure, the flood also affected a total of 332,327 farmlands.
Agbani said that the distribution of the inputs was being done simultaneously in Kano, Gombe, Adamawa, Edo, Delta, Bayelsa, Anambra, Kogi Benue, Ogun and Oyo states.
