Flood: farmers to get free seeds in Jigawa 


In a bid to cushion the effects of flood on farmers in Jigawa, the State Government says it has purchased seeds valued at  N110.98m  to distribute  to them.

While speaking on the distribution of the seeds, General Manager, Jigawa Agricultural Supply Company (JASCO) , Alhaji Muhammad Lana, said this gesture  would enable affected farmers engage in dry season farming.

He explained that JASCO bought all items including maize, cowpea, tomatoes and watermelon seeds and agrochemicals because the state government was bothered  by the plight  of the affected farmers.

The  General Manager added that  the State Government was committed to the welfare of farmers in the state.
