The momentous partnership will see both party join forces to work on maize hybrid seed development in Nigeria as a strategy in promoting the country’s modern farming techniques and practices.
The laudable move further lends credence to Flour Mills’ fidelity to “Feeding the Nation, Everyday,” with the hope of building a formidable capacity development and knowledge transfer for the local production and use of improved quality inputs, including seeds and crop protection.
FMN and Corteva Agriscience™ are optimistic that their collaboration will forge a financially resourceful relevance to work with Nigerian agencies in strengthening the legal framework for Plant Variety Protection (PVP) in intellectual property laws, which will not only guarantee the country’s access to the best technology solutions but also protect the rights of smallholder farmers.
“We are excited at the prospects of this partnership, and what we can achieve,” says Chairman FMN, John Coumantaros.
Coumantaros added: “Corteva Agriscience™ is a globally renowned company with a wealth of experience in crop protection and biotechnology solutions, and will introduce new and exciting seed production techniques that will help develop the maize hybrid seed market in Nigeria.
“Over the years, FMN has invested heavily in the primary processing, aggregation and distribution of locally grown grains such as maize, soybean, rice, sorghum and wheat, and are passionate about strengthening the capabilities of small-scale farmers, even as we continue to seek out newer ways of deepening our supply chain.”
Reiterating on the partnership, Group Managing Director, FMN, Paul Gbededo stated, “We are currently in the sustainability testing phase for the most viable varieties suitable for this environment and envisage that the next step will be to establish in Nigeria, a world-class hybrid maize production plant.
“Our business is ultimately about providing for the livelihood of millions of Nigerian families, by ensuring that they have access to great food, and as such, we are focused on building a business that caters for not just their nutritional needs but enriches their lives,” added Gbededo.
Meanwhile, the Commercial Unit Director, Africa Middle East, Corteva Agriscience™, Agriculture Division of DowDuPont, Prabdeep Bajwa said, the partnership endorses their commitment to collaboration across the food chain to transform the role of agriculture in the society and enhance the livelihood of farmers in Nigeria.
Bajwa added, “Our Company is investing in innovation, drawing on our knowledge of genetics, chemistry and digital to give farmers in Africa more and better products and ensuring their success.”
To prove their readiness in changing Nigeria’s agriculture space, FMN and Corteva Agriscience™ have already started work on demonstration farm plots in the country to showcase high-performing hybrid maize varieties with additional test sites expected to commence soon in Kwara, Niger, Kaduna, Kano, Oyo, Nassarawa, Bauchi, Plateau States, as well as the Federal Capital Territory.
