He added that the demand gap was always met through average annual import of 80,135 tonnes of concentrate and paste valued at N18 billion. Represented by Michael Kanu, the Director, FDA, the permanent secretary noted that the importation of tomato paste has applied enormous pressure on the country’s foreign exchange earnings. Ahmed said over 10 tomato packing factories are located in Lagos axis, while only few fresh fruits processing plants are located in the North West and East. He said that the factories were crippled by the absence of raw materials due to “tutaabsoluta” invasion and destruction of tomato farms in the country.

He explained that tutaabsoluta, also known as tomato ebola by local farmers, was a pest that could destroy whole farms within 48 hours due to its complex life cycle. “This resulted in the scarcity and high cost of fresh tomato fruits as well as shutting down of some processing factories in the country,” Ahmed said. The permanent secretary said that the workshop was aimed at ensuring increase in agricultural productivity by developing tools for the fruit and vegetable industry in the country. Ahmed expressed the hope that that the workshop would impact knowledge and develop skills of farmers at the state level. “The farmers learn the various strategies and management practices for control and containment of the invasive pest of tomato with emphasis on use of environmentally friendly technology,” he said. Ahmed, however, urged the participants to take advantage of the opportunity and ensure that they utilise the skills and knowledge acquired as well as train other farmers.
