fertilizer spot 1 300x214Efforts are underway for the commencement of large-scale, commercial production of fertiliser in Nasarawa State.
Nasarawa State Commissioner for Agriculture and Natural Resources, Jamil Zakari revealed this in an interview with Journalists in Lafia.
The Commissioner who said that the state will start large-scale, commercial production of soil specific fertiliser in 2019 noted that four modular fertiliser-blending plants would be established.
He further stated that the fertiliser-blending plants would be sited across the three senatorial zones of the state, hence expected to produce various kinds of fertiliser that were suitable for different soil types across the state.
“We do not just want to produce a 'one-fit-all’ commodity, we want to produce fertilisers that are tailor-made, organic and receptive to our peculiar soil types.”
“The structures have been erected and machines are already installed at various sites; production will soon start,’’. He said
Zakari stressed that the rationale behind the initiative was to guarantee farmers in the state a hitch-free access to fertilisers that were suitable for their soil types at affordable rates.
On the challenges faced by farmers on the acquisition of fertilisers during cropping seasons, the Commissioner said it would be over in no distant time, as the blending plants would engage in all year round production.
