OCP LabIn its continued effort aimed at increasing rice production in the country, OCP Africa, a global fertilizer company, has launched an extended its ‘Agribooster’ programme to support 4,000 rice farmers in Kebbi State.
Caleb Usoh, the Country Manager of OCP Africa, while speaking at the launch of the programme held in Kalgo, Kebbi State, explained that the ‘Agribooster’ programme is part of the company’s ongoing efforts to facilitate the provision of all necessary resources, training, extension service and market access for smallholder farmers across Nigeria.
According to him, “The Agribooster programme is a unique initiative that works across the supply chain to connect African farmers with quality inputs, financing and insurance and provides comprehensive training on proper input use, thereby increasing farmers’ crop yields and incomes.
“The programme also supports the strengthening of the farmers’ commercial ties and enables them to benefit from training and extension/propagation services based on agricultural best practices.”
Usoh also stated that the trial phase of the programme, first deployed in Kaduna State, reached nearly 5,000 smallholder maize farmers and generated an increase in their productivity by up to 41 per cent.
