NIRSAL PLC is calling on all farmers, farmer authorities and aggregators to key into its Agro Geo-Cooperative model established for the objective of sustainable farm/field structuring and governance, to promote bearable access to finance, quality inputs and structured markets through NIRSAL’s facilitation.
The exercise aims at creating 16,000 Agro Geo-Cooperatives (ranging from 10 hectares to 20,001 hectares and above) on 4 million hectares of farmland and registering about 8 million farmers across Nigeria who are required to produce about 12 million metric tonnes of Grain Product Equivalent (GPE) annually over the medium to long term.
In line with this, Community Leaders, Individuals, Enterprises, Corporate Bodies, Graduates, N-POWER Beneficiaries, Active and Retired leaders and farmers in:
The ADP programme, World Bank FADAMA Programme, USAID MARKETS Programme, IFAD Value Chain Development Programme, The World Bank Climate Adaptation and Business Support Programme, AfDB Agric Programmes, the DFID’s Propcom Maikarfi Programme, the SASSAKAWA Global 2000 Programme and others that meet NIRSAL PLC’s eligibility prerequisites and who are domiciled in or have entrance to their communities and farmers, are encouraged to take advantage of this chance as a means of employment and a stream of income generation through supporting the productive activities of their self-organized Agro Geo-Cooperatives.
