23 Mar Project Farm2Life
In sub-Saharan Africa, where hunger and starvation have long been a threat, lack of fertilizer is a primary reason agricultural yields lag the rest of the world, especially as the combination of high prices and shortages forces some farmers to revert to older methods of fertilization. These challenges have stifled agricultural productivity affecting the sector’s contribution to the country’s GDP as well as increased food imports due population rise hence declining levels of food sufficiency. For instance, between 2016 and 2019 Nigeria’s cumulative agricultural imports stood at N3.35 trillion, four times higher than the agricultural export of N803 billion within the same period.
Through Project Farm2Life, The Wishwall Foundation will be giving free fertilizers to 35 rural farmers from 3 communities to help increase their crop yield this farming session. The distribution of fertilizers in Jos East, Plateau State will significantly help farmers crop yield which will help them earn higher and be able to take care of their families.
Fertilizers will be distributed to farmers to prepare their land for the farming session and also in-between to help with massive crop yield.
