– Katsina gov’t allocate 89 bags of fertiliser for N5,000 per polling unit
Farmers in Katsina State will purchase fertilizers at a subsidized price of five thousand Naira per bag in this year’s wet season farming.
This price, according to the State Agricultural and Rural Development Agency, is based on the state government’s additional subsidy of five hundred Naira, to make fertilizers more affordable to farmers in the state.
According to our sources also, each polling unit in the Northern part of the State will receive 89 bags of the subsidized fertiliser while Local Governments in the southern part of the state will receive 109 bags of the same commodity
But farmers who spoke to correspondent of our source decried the delay in the sale of subsidized fertiliser in the current farming season.
In a related development, the General Manager of the Katsina Farmers Agricultural Supply Companies, FASCOM – Alhaji Abdu Abu Kofar Soro said the fertiliser distribution will begin this week.
Alhaji Abdu Abu also advised the state farmers to reciprocate the government gesture by using and not selling the fertiliser.
He also prayed for God’s intervention to give the farmers a bumper harvest.
