farmers rice farmThe Edo Fadama III project office says that it has funded the cultivation of additional 280 hectares of rice in Edo South Senatorial District for the 2018 planting season. Mr Edward Izevbigie, the Project Coordinator, Edo Fadama III Additional Financing, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Benin.

Izevbigie explained that 280 farmers were selected from Ovia North East and Ovia South West Local Government Areas in the zone to plant one hectare of rice each.

"We have also funded about 140 hectares of rice fields in Edo North Senatorial District,” he said.
The coordinator told NAN that the office had a target of 3,000 hectares of rice fields to fund this year.

He said that the funding was made possible because the State Government had met the eligibility criteria to participate in the programme by paying its counterpart fund for the Fadama III additional financing.

He said the state government had also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Agrotech Nigeria Limited as the up-taker of all the produce after harvest.
