Mr Raymos Guanah, proprietor, Guanah Rice Farms, Illah, Delta, has said that he plans engaging 50 graduates to produce more rice to feed the newly procured processing mill in the farm. Guanah disclosed this to the press in his farm at Illah, near Asaba, the Delta capital on Sunday. The former Commissioner for Lands said the plan was to increase rice production and create jobs for the youths in the state.  He explained that each of the 50 graduates would be provided five hectares of land, improved rice seedlings, agrochemicals and other incentives, to encourage them to produce rice for the mill. “I am starting a programme through which I intend to engage out-growers, so that I can meet my target in feeding the processing mill.  “I want to get up to 50 graduates across the state, support them with improved seedlings, agrochemicals and other incentives.  “At the end of the harvest, the whole rice would be processed in the mill and supplied to buyers.
