Plateau State could simply be tagged the home of Irish potatoes because of the chilled and favourable weather condition that favours the cultivation of the root crop. No wonder Irish potatoes are grown in commercial quantities in Mangu, and Bokkos Local Government Areas of the state. These two area councils of Plateau state alone can feed the entire country and beyond with Irish Potatoes cultivated in commercial quantity from the area.

No be middle belt? That region is so blessed with food but cursed with Fulani marauders.

Anyway, I am looking to set up some agro-allied industry there soon to promote the #buyNigeria policy we surely needed since yesterday.

Nice one OP. What's the name of this farm if you don't mind me asking? Vicampro?
