The Edo State Fadama office has trained about 26, 000 farmers on crop production and farming techniques across the three senatorial districts of the state.
The Edo State Coordinator of the World Bank-Assisted Programme, Ms Judith Momodu, disclosed this to the press in Benin and said that the training which was designed to improve agricultural activities to guarantee bumper harvest was conducted by accredited service providers and agricultural consultants.
Momodu said the training was aimed at building the capacity of farmers to improve and broaden their scope of farming including livestock production, tree and crop production, fertiliser application, land preparation, disease and pest control.
NaijaAgroNet heard from the state coordinator that a total of N113 million had been disbursed to 29 Fadama community associations in the state.
