Dr Samuel Adaji, the Director, Federal Ministry of Agriculture in Taraba, has urged the state’s sorghum farmers to form co-operative societies to enable them access funds needed for large-scale production.
Adaji told the Newsmen in Jalingo on Friday that government was committed to improving the quality of lives of farmers by assisting them with soft loans and seedlings for higher productivity.
“The Federal Government is committed to encouraging sorghum production to achieve food security and improve the economy.”
He urged the farmers who had benefited from the training to share their knowledge with other sorghum farmers.
“Some of the sorghum farmers have already been trained on the new methods of sorghum production by the Federal Government.
“I want to call on them (the farmers) to share the knowledge they gained from the workshops with other farmers who were yet to be trained,” Adaji said
