Dry season farmers in Kaduna State have appealed to the state government to provide adequate inputs to enable them to scale up production in the 2017/2018 farming season.
The state Chairman, Fadama Farmers Association, Ahmed Muhammed, made the appeal on Wednesday in Kaduna.
Muhammed spoke on the sideline of the Agriculture Vision Group meeting convened to validate the Agricultural Investment Plan for approval by the state government.
Members of the group are drawn from various farmer groups engaged in crop production and officials in the state Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry.
The chairman said the state had hundreds of thousands of hectares of arable Fadama land not yet cultivated.
