Training for farmers on production of quality beans has commenced in 10 states of the federation under the auspices of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture in partnership with the Nigeria Agricultural Quarantine Service (NAQS).
This was disclosed in Kano at a One-Day sensitization workshop on Good Agricultural practice by a Director at NAQS, Dr. Maimuna Abdullahi.
She said the goal of the training was to prepare farmers with the right knowledge of good farming practices.
According to her,” For us to resuscitate that market, we have to do a lot of sensitization programs to ensure that farmers are doing the right thing through agricultural practice. We should ensure that whatever is being exported is of good quality and safe for human consumption, by using Zero Fly Hermetic storage bag so that it can be patronised.”
One of the participants of the training from Katsina state, Alhaji Sani Isa who lauded the training said it would help farmers plant and harvest better beans in the planting season.
” It will provide a ground where farmers will be able to sell their products to the outside world at the highest possible profit to improve their socio-economic status.” He said
