Trainings are an integral aspect of ensuring agricultural productivity. We recently held trainings in Adamawa, Kano and Federal Capital Territory for our Extension Agents. This training was focussed on improving best practices in agronomy, modern agricultural extension methodologies, warehouse management techniques, mainstreaming gender in agricultural Extension and advisory and introduction to the Alluival app; GAP.
The alluvial application is designed to aid Extension Agents in farmer registration, input distribution, extension activities and monitoring and harvest recovery.
Overall we trained over 50 EAs who came from 6 different states in Nigeria.
Improving skill set, investing and impacting knowledge takes us a step further in solving Africa’s food insecurity.
Patience Dang is a smallholder farmer and a university graduate living in Jos. She cultivates maize and Irish potatoes. Like some farmers, she started farming due to the steep rate of unemployment in Nigeria.
However, things changed favourably for her when she came in contact with an organisation that supported her farming activities. In this episode of Women in Agriculture, Ms Dang shares an interesting experience.
