The Minister of Agriculture and Food Security, Abubakar Kyari
said the federal government is planning to launch comprehensive agric mechanism.
This was disclosed at the close of the implementation review and preparatory meeting for the second phase of the 2023-2024 dry-season farming in Abuja.
Kyari stated that the plan aligns with President Bola Tinubu’s economic revitalisation agenda using mechanisation agriculture to drive the initiative.
According to him, Nigeria currently faces challenges in mechanisation, lagging behind other countries in sub-Saharan Africa.
Reports by the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), shows that the country has only 0.27 tractors per 1,000 hectares of cropland in contrast to 4.7 in South Africa and 2.7 in Ghana.
Kyari noted that the new mechanisation plan will address the disparity and elevate Nigeria’s agricultural practices.
