No fewer than 2,743 farmers in Lagos State would ‪next week Tuesday‬ receive inputs and productive assets under the State Government 2020 Agricultural Value Chains Empowerment Programme.

The State Acting Commissioner for Agriculture, Ms. Abisola Olusanya, who disclosed this today in Lagos, explained that farmers, agro-processors, fishermen, butchers and marketers would all benefit from the empowerment programme as productive assets peculiar to all the agricultural value chains would be made available to them at no cost.

According to her, the Agricultural Value Chains Empowerment Programme has been designed as a means of channelling the needed support to small-holder farmers who are actively engaged in the various Agricultural Value Chains, thereby creating further wealth and job opportunities in farming communities.

Olusanya explained that the aim of the empowerment programme was to provide the necessary inputs and assets needed by farmers to improve food production in the State in an effort targeted toward increasing the State’s self-sufficiency to 40% of food needs by 2023.

“The overall aim of the Agricultural Value Chains Empowerment Programme is to provide the necessary agricultural inputs and productive assets to farmers as a means of achieving improved food production and supply as well as delivering optimum economic benefits to farmers and other operators”, she averred.
