WAAPP-NIGERIA INVESTMENT IN COMMUNITY-BASED AGRICULTU

 

WAAPP-Nigeria signed partnership MOU with 29 state ADPs.  The WAAPP-sponsored initiatives to be jointly pursued include Community-based Agricultural Seed Multiplication.  This is one of the ways by which WAAPP is promoting the adoption of proven agricultural technologies that will increase productivity and efficiency.  The community-based seed multiplication initiation is aimed at contributing toward seed sufficiency among rural farmers in the country.  To this end, WAAPP-Nigeria has already invested in the production and supply of foundation seeds for cassava, maize, rice, sorghum, and yam to ADPs in 24 states (including the TCT).  WAAPP’s commitment involves covering the cost of the agricultural seeds, the farm inputs, farmer training, technical assistance, and a mandatory inspection regime by the National Agricultural Seeds Council (NASC), as part of the processes for the production of Certified Seeds which will be available for farmers’ use in 2014 farming season.  The state ADPs are technical partners in the community-based seed multiplication initiative.  WAAPP has so far invested about N435,622,132. Table below shows the details of WAAPP investment in the respective crops for each partner state ADP.
