Prices Of Bread, Paste May Crash As FG Releases Four New Varieties Of Wheat by 2mercy: 8:10pm On Jun 22, 2023
Prices of bread and pasta may soon crash, The Nation has gathered.

This is because high-yield varieties of wheat used for production have been introduced to farmers in the country.

Wheat is among the ten new varieties of crop approved for release by the Federal Government approved as part of the effort to address food security, sustainability and sufficiency in the country.

The government gave the approval through the National Committee on Naming, Registration and Release of Crop Varieties, Livestock Breeds and Fisheries during its 32nd meeting at the Conference hall, National Centre For Genetic Resources And Biotechnology (NACGRAB), Moor Plantation, Ibadan, the Oyo State capital on Thursday.

The ten newly approved crops include four varieties of wheat, four potato varieties and two synthetic maize varieties.

The approval followed an earlier submission by the Technical Sub-Commitee (TSC) of the National Committee on Naming, Registration and Release of Crop Varieties, Livestock Breeds and Fisheries at its 36th meeting.

The four new wheat varieties comprised two bread wheat varieties (Borlaug100 and Neloki) and two durum-wheat varieties (Crino and Bayoreca).

The wheat varieties were submitted by the Lake Chad Research Institute, Maiduguri, Nigeria, International Maize and Wheat Improvement Centre, Mexico and Flour Milling Association of Nigeria.

Stakeholders at the meeting include the Head of Department, Cereal Research, LCRI, Dr Zakari Turaki; an Agronomist, Floor Milling Association of Nigeria (FMAN), Mr Hamed Abdulahi; Director/CEO, LCRI, Maiduguri, Prof Babagana Kabir; and Registrar NACGRAB, Dr Anthony Okere all agreed that the new wheat varieties are high yield and will in a short time help address the importation of wheat which largely account for the high cost of bread and pasta.

Hopefully, they're not genetically modified foods. undecided

The one good thing we have in Nigeria is that we still eat natural foods/fruits.
We should preserve that.

What sort of stupid propaganda is this? How does introduction of a new variant of wheat affects the cost of production, equlibrate market forces? Does the government took cognisance that some persons may be allergic to wheat?

Cut the cost the cost of governance, liberate the market, enable SMEs to thrive, increase minimum wage among many critical issues that will make life easy for the common man, they said no.

Lol...By the time this same government hit them with heavy tax and other levies, they'll begin to complain that they're making very little profit and start blaming the government for suffocating them with taxes and levies. This would make them sell their products at the same price as the regular ones in the market. So we'd be back to square one with high cost of bread.

Our famers are yet to plant the new variety, so, let all fingers be crossed.

However, I hope this won't go the way of anchor borrower scheme under Buhari. Anchor borrower was targeted to increase rice farming, but the price is still on the rise. The government has refuse to deal with main issue which is insecurity.

Many of us want our our children to pass exams, given the poor condition of the classrooms. Only a secure famer would go and plant a new variety of wheat.

Here is an excerpt from the defunct Anchor borrower under APC.

That's another matter!... No one is ready for that discussion!

The way the hardship is going, soon they may start dumping cheap experimental and GMO foodstuffs into this nation!
