TractorFarmers in Kebbi State have renewed their determination to make good use of the federal government anchor borrower agricultural development policy by feeding the nation with abundant rice. Speaking with farmers during a mini media tour in Augie, Kalgo and Dandi Local Government Areas, farmers explained that, the introduction of the anchor borrowers programme in the state had help greatly in boosting rice production in the state. At Bubuche town in Augie Local Government a farmer, Sarkin Noma Umaru, said with the financial, seeds and other items farmers were opportune to cultivate multiple of farm lands and recorded successful harvest.  According to him, as the federal and state governments are determined to continue with the programme, there is need for prompt release of the funds and other implements to avoid a repeat of what happened in the first year of the programme. Also, one Adamu Bubuche appealed for the drilling of boreholes in the area as the area could not accommodate tube wells, if they are to partake in the irrigation scheme.
The farmers at Itene in Kalgo Local Government Areas acknowledge the receipt of funds to the tune of N86,000 a pump machine, three bags of fertilizer, a bag of seed and pesticide per individual.
They further lamented absence of agric extension workers to educate them on the modern farming techniques.
Governor Atiku Bagudu who was physically at Bubuche, assured the farmers of the government readiness to give all necessary support to rice farming in the state.
“We are ready to produce even more than the expectation, you have seen what we are producing, by the end of this year we are going to feed the nation, the price of rice would reduce,” he added
