GGP-Assisted Mechanised Farming

GGP grant to boost rice production in Kwara. 2019

In actualizing the Japanese commitment to the growth and development of agriculture in Nigeria , the GGP is providing funds to encourage self sufficiency and boost rice production through lowland mechanization for harvesting and threshing for intensive and sustainable rice production in parts of Kwara State.

This will provide support to over 2000 rural farmers, mostly women and adolescent girls to produce a shift from low yielding manual and strenuous farming practices to highly productive farming boosted by mechanization, thereby making farming a viable business and tackling poverty in these communities.
