The Climate Adaptation and Agribusiness Support Programme CASP, a programme of International Food and Agriculture Development IFAD, has called on its beneficiaries to plant quality seeds to boost their yield.
The Communication Officer of IFAD-CASP, Abdullahi Surajo, made the call on Thursday in Abuja.
He said that IFAD-CASP had been mobilising farmers in its beneficiary communities to plant good-quality seeds to improve their productivity.
Surajo said that the new IFAD programme was aimed improving agricultural production, with tangible emphasis on commercial agriculture involving crops like rice, sorghum and cowpea.
Borno, Jigawa, Katsina, Kebbi, Sokoto, Yobe and Zamfara states are participating in the six-year programme, which started in 2015
