The Project Director, Dr Debo Akande, stated at the opening of the three-day programme, in ibadan that the training was centred on pre-harvest management of aflatoxin and aflasafe, a bio-control herbicide application.
Akade noted that the training will focus on maize agronomy, in boosting productivity and post-harvest safety measures to sustain maize grain quality.
According to him, the project would also address measures to reduce aflatoxin, a virus that attacks maize and groundnuts.
The Director said the project was organised to show that the private sector could participate in agribusiness and agricultural innovation delivery to control how farmers access the available technologies.
