Agriculture / Anambra To Begin Exportation Of Rice by naijagro: 12:55am On Mar 01, 2018
Anambra State Government says it has concluded plans to begin the exportation of rice once it increases the state’s rice production capacity from the current 345,000 metric tonnes to 600,000 metric tonnes this year.
This followed the introduction of new irrigation technology for rice production in the eight Local Government Areas that produce the commodity in large quantities.
Governor Willie Obiano stated this at the inspection of the multi-million Naira Center Pivot Irrigation System in Ogbaru Local Government Area. He said that the introduction of new irrigation system in four locations was to facilitate all-year round rice production, as well as empower 2,500 farmers across the state.
He revealed that the Central Bank of Nigeria would provide funds to the state government to enable it off-take paddy produced in the state for onward sale to millers to forestall lack of markets for the produce.
Obiano pledged his government’s commitment towards the training of young farmers in modern agriculture.
The governor said that under the FADAMA III Additional Financing, sorghum would be added to the crops chosen for cultivation adding that the Onitsha –based Sabmiller Breweries had indicated interest in buying sorghum from the project.
Anambra State Coordinator of FADAMA III Additional Financing, Mr Chukwuka Egbueh stated that 11 rural roads leading to the rice production belts in the state were under construction, to boost rice production in the state. He noted that 18 youth and women groups had been provided with rice mills, tricycles, threshers and de-stoners to facilitate their production.
Egbueh added that FADAMA had constructed drying slabs in five locations: Umumbo, Ogbaru, Amanuke and Ifite Ogwari to hasten the drying of rice.

Agriculture / FG TO Provide 30 Million School Children With High Nutrient Density Biscuit by naijagro: 11:14am On Feb 23, 2018
The federal government has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with NASCO Food limited, Jos, Plateau State, for commercial production of high nutrient density biscuits to feed about 30 million school children below the age of 13.
The Minister of Science and Technology, Ogbonnaya Onu, who spoke at the signing ceremony in Abuja at the weekend, said the MoU was necessary in order to advance the implementation process of government desire to enhance a healthy development of children through the programme.
While the project will address the lack of vital vitamins in children’s food, the minister said it was also conceived out of the need to tackle the increasing food challenges facing children in primary school between the ages of five and 13 years. “This is surely the best way to go as the nation is giving serious attention to utilisation of indigenous technologies as a potent strategy to diversify the economy to provide alternative revenue sources. “In this process, jobs will be created, wealth will be generated and the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), will be enhanced through the productive sector of the economy,” he said.
According to him, the high nutrient density biscuits were one of the products of Federal Institute of Industrial Research Oshodi (FIIRO), Lagos, which would meet at least one- third recommended dietary allowance of Pupils.In a remark, the General Manager of NASCO Foods, Ibrahim Sani, thanked the ministry for counting the company worthy to partner with it in the commercial production of the biscuits.
Sani, said NASCO Foods limited is an indigenous company that has contributed immensely to the economic development of Nigeria in its 50 years of existence.
The wholly indigenous company, according to him, has capacity and experience to produce biscuit products to feed estimated 25 million children in public primary schools across the country.
Also in a brief remark, the Director General,FIIRO, Gloria Elemo, said the mandate of the institute was to carry out research and development into food and agro-allied processing technologies. “The signing of MoU signifies the technical commencement of strategic partnership with NASCO Foods to fully commercialise the biscuits production technology. “The biscuit is developed from indigenous crops which reflect the nation’s best in terms of foods security, safety and standard which will be commercially produced with this arrangement.”

Agriculture / Oyo And Niger States To Provide Fertilizers For Farmers by naijagro: 9:59am On Feb 23, 2018
The Oyo and Niger State Governments have pledged to provide fertilisers for farmers in their states to boost food production.
Oyo State Commissioner for Agriculture, Natural Resources and Rural Development, Mr Oyewole Oyewunmi, said in Ibadan, Thursday that 12, 000 metric tonnes of UREA/NPK fertiliser would be sold at subsidised rate to farmers in the state ahead of the next planting season.
He expressed the state government’s readiness to boost the state’s economy by improving farming operations and farmers’ yields, stressing that the fertilisers would be available in all the eight warehouses and the farm service centres where agricultural inputs were sold in the state.
He stated that under the Federal Government Special Fertiliser Intervention Programme, the state would receive 8,000 metric tonnes of NPK fertilisers while the state government would procure 4,000 metric tonnes of UREA fertiliser to be sold to farmers at a subsidised rate.
Oyewnmi explained that concentration would be on the procurement of fertilisers and not agrochemicals which could be easily accessed by farmers in their communities.
The commissioner called on all stakeholders, particularly the youths, to engage in agriculture to achieve food security, job creation and poverty eradication.
Similarly, the Niger State Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, Nuhu Dukku, has said that the state government would begin the distribution of fertiliser at subsidised rates to farmers in the state between March and April.
Nuhu who spoke in Minna, the state capital said that the state government would not rely on fertiliser supplies from the Federal Government, adding that it had entered into a partnership with a private firm for the procurement of the fertiliser.
Dukku said that only genuine farmers would access the fertilisers as distribution and monitoring committees would be inaugurated in all the fertiliser distribution centres. He revealed plans by the state government to purchase tractors to be distributed at subsidised rates to farmers in order to boost food production. He lauded the farmers for bumper harvest recorded last year and urged them to produce more food this year.

Agriculture / Edo State Governmnet Bans Night Crazing Of Herdsmen by naijagro: 10:36am On Feb 09, 2018
The Edo State Government has banned night grazing and the carrying of guns by herders in the state. It has also set up a seven-member committee in each of the local government areas in the state to check clashes between herders and farmers.According to a statement on Thursday by the spokesperson to the governor, Crusoe Osagie, the committees will include the chairpersons or heads of the LGAs, the Divisional Police Officers (DPOs), representatives of State Security Service and four representatives of communities. These decisions were announced after a meeting of Governor Godwin Obaseki with heads of Hausa/Fulani communities from the 18LGAs in the state.Mr. Obasaki said the state government would release the report of clashes between herdsmen and farmers in the state to the committees for review. “The committees will ensure the registration of all the Seriki Fulani in every community across all the local government areas and the Seriki Fulani will liaise with everyone rearing cattle in the area. ”According to the governor, another committee to be headed by him will include the State Commissioner of Police, the Director of the State Security Service in the state, the Commander of 4 Brigade of the Nigerian Army and other members drawn from communities across the three senatorial districts of thestate. “Every three months, we will meet with representatives of the local government committees to review and examine the progress being made in resolving the herdsmen/farmers’ clashes in the state,” the governor said. “A special team madeup of the Police, Army, Civil Defence Corps and other security agencies in the state will carry out random patrols and search operations. Any herdsman found possessing firearms will be arrested and charged with illegal possession of firearms as a cattle rearer does not need an AK47 to herd cattle. “We will not accept anyone with firearms and anyone found with arms will face the law. We need information to succeed in this fight and information is vital to the police and other security agencies. We assure you of your safety. “We have placed a ban on night herding; nobody should herd their cattle at night. We have also placed a ban on hunting activities by people from other states in the name of hunting,” Mr. Obaseki said.The Chairman of the Hausa Community in the state, Badamasi Saleh, requested for protection of “sources of security information, as most members of the communities find it difficult to volunteer information to the security agencies as they fear that their identities would not be protected. ”Usman Abdullahi, representing the Hausa/Fulani community in Edo Central Senatorial District, pledged the cooperation of his people with the state security agencies “to fish out any member of their communities who engages in criminal activities.”

Agriculture / Herdsmem To Pay For Grazing Reserves- Vice President Osinbajo by naijagro: 10:02am On Feb 09, 2018
Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday stated that the Federal Government lacked the powers to seize land from states for the establishment of grazing reserves or livestock production centres. Osinbajo also announced that herdsmen would pay for the services to be rendered by the proposed ranches or grazing reserves by the government.He stated these at the opening ceremony of a two-day summit on national security organised by the Senate in Abuja. Also in attendance are the Senate President, Bukola Saraki; Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu; Minister of Interior, Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazau (retd.); the service chiefs and senators.Osinbajo said, “Let me reiterate that on no account will any land be seized or forcefully taken to create ranches or grazing areas. All insinuations to that effect should be disregarded. No one is giving land to herdsmen, as is being falsely alleged. “Instead, it is in our view that states that are willing and have set aside land for development should cooperate with willing investors in commercially-viable, government-supported ranches or livestock production centres for commercial use.”The VP however pointed out that some states, especially in the North, had duly gazetted grazing reserves.According to him, a majority of these grazing reserves are degraded and without pasture or water, especially during thedry season. He added, “There is also a clear sense which I think must be appreciated, that the Federal Government cannot dictate to states what to do with their land. This is so because the Land Use Act of 1978 puts land under the control of governors on behalf of their states.“Also, the Supreme Court in the case of the Attorney General of Lagos State versus the Attorney General of the Federation in 2004, held that the use of land resources and permits for such use lie firmly in the hands of state governments. Even for use of federal lands in the states accordingto the Supreme Court, building or development control permit must be sought from the governors of the states.”Osinbajo noted that grazing routes leading to these reserves must also be secured.He said for the grazing reserves to be effective and operate effectively, they should be operated as ranches or livestock production centres on a commercial basis. Osinbajo said, “Theranches will have adequate water from boreholes, salt points and pasture. The locations would serve both as forage points and centres for providing extension services to boost animal care, feeding and veterinary facilities, and even abattoirs. Because the ranches are commercial ventures, cattle owners will pay for their use. “It is important to note that by and large, in consultation with stakeholders, all agreethat where adequate provision is made on a commercial basis,there is no reason why there won’t be cooperation to use those ranches because there are both economic and social benefits for everyone, including herders.”Osinbajo said apart from states that had gazetted grazing areas, 13 states had agreed to allocate 5,000 hectares of land for ranching or livestock production.source:http://punchng.com/herdsmen-to-pay-for-grazing-reserves-says-osinbajo-state-community-police-will-end-killings-vp/Don’t forget to comment if you found this post interesting.All questions will be answered in less than 24hrs.You can also follow me on any of my social media handles: instagram, twitter and snapchat- madu_321

Agriculture / 10 Health Benefits Of Chevon/ Mutton (goat Meat) by naijagro: 4:03pm On Feb 08, 2018
Despite being classified as red meat, goat meat is leaner and contains less cholesterol, fat, and protein than both lamb and beef. Therefore, it requires low-heat, slow cooking to preserve tenderness and moisture. Fat contained in goat meat is less than fat contained in chicken. So, chicken breast is not the only source of fatless protein for your healthy lifestyle, goat meat could be the alternative.
1.Lowers the Risk of Inflammation in Blood Vessel: One of the amazing benefits of goat meat is the fact that it is able to lower the risk of inflammation especially in blood vessel. It is due to CLA contained in goat meat. CLA or Conjugated Linoleic Acid is one of the fatty acids that is able to prevent and reduce the risk of inflammation condition.
2.Contains Lower Saturated Fat than Beef: Saturated fat is one of the reasons behind many cardiovascular diseases while the unsaturated fat is the counterpart. As goat meat contains lower saturated fat than beef, so it is a very good alternative for protein source from meat other than from beef. Besides that, as higher in saturated fat surely it provides more benefits to your health than beef could. It is because most of goat is raised traditionally and locally. That’s why it contains less fat than other meats, so it is good for those who are currently in diet program. Furthermore, as rich of vitamin B, goat meat is also able to burn fat and controls the weight.
3.Promotes Hemoglobin Production: Hemoglobin is one type of protein that prominent to the body metabolism. Some of them are distributing oxygen to all body cells and second hemoglobin is important to the development of fetus during pregnancy.
4.Prevents Birth Defect: There are a lot of reasons why a pregnant mother shouldn’t be afraid of goat meat but one of those is goat meat could prevent birth defect. Itis because goat meat contains iron and Vitamin B12 which contributes in the production of red blood cells. Without enough red blood cells, the development of fetus will be disturbed and birth defect is the worst case that could happen because of that.
5.Relieves the Symptoms of PMS: The symptoms of PMS sometimes are not only about the pain but some uncomfortable feelings that come with the PMS could cause mood swing in women. Well, if you’re not losing your appetite during PMS, perhaps adding goat meat aspart of your diet could assist in relieving the symptoms.
6.Contains Omega 3 Fatty Acid: Most people think that omega 3 fatty acid is only found in fish products but if fresh sea food is hard to find in your area, you could consume goat meat as the alternative.
7.Balances Cholesterol Level: Many people believe that everything that tastes delicious like red meat is bad for their cholesterol level. Well, perhaps you just don’t know that it is not the meat but the saturated fat contained in the meat is the reason behind your bad cholesterol. That’s why goat meat is a very good alternative; its unsaturated fat level is higher compared to the saturated fat so it is able to control your cholesterol level.
8.Prevents Anemia: Basically, all types of meat is good for anemia and goat meat is on the top of the list. It is because goat meat contains relatively high iron. Furthermore, goat meat is safe to be consumed by pregnant women, since anemia is one of the cases that is mostly suffered during pregnancy.
9.Contains Selenium and Chlorine: There are a lot of ways to prevent cancer and one of them is consuming food that contains selenium and chlorine. Goat meat is one of those foods.
10.Acts as Anti Aging: One more amazing thing about goat meat is it also could act as anti aging. It is because goat meat is so rich of minerals especially ironthat could promote healthy cells’ regenerations or enhance the production of new cells. So, consuming goat meat regularly could make you look younger.
Just like any other red meat, there are also some drawbacks of consuming meat in big portion and goat meat is no exception. Below are some cautions you should aware of:
1. Consuming goat meat in big portion in regular basis could cause some serious problems like obesity, weight gain and food poisoning.
2. Though consuming goat meat is relatively good for heart but those who already heart problem should avoid goat meat entirely.
3. Goat meat could cause problems in digestive system. That’s why learning how to cook it properly is important.
4. Since there is no such standard for goat meat like beef, pork and chicken is difficult to make sure whether the meat is already ensured to be free from diseases since mostly goat is raised locally in small farm.
The major problem with goat meat is, it’s closely associated with some cardiovascular conditions especially hypertension or the raise of blood pressure. People with those health conditions should avoid goat meat entirely. However, all types of meat could cause the same conditions if consumed in big portion
Although known to raise cholesterol levels and blood pressure, but goat meat also has health benefits when consumed in appropriate portions

Agriculture / Re: 5 Health Benefits Of Pork by naijagro: 6:49pm On Feb 07, 2018

Your post is mischievous.

The WHO article refers to all PROCESSED MEAT and not to Pork exclusively.

What is processed meat?

Processed meat is considered to be any meat which has been modified in order either to improve its taste or to extend its shelf life. Methods of meat processing include salting , curing , fermentation , and smoking .

We don't use these methods for preserving pork in Nigeria.

Infact you should be more worried about suya and smoked fish because of the likely carcinogens from smoke preservation

Also in terms of salting preservation sodium nitrite is used in the western world. We don't use sodium nitrite here in Nigeria!!!

The preservative sodium nitrite (E250) (mixed into curing-salt) is well known for its role in inhibiting the growth of clostridium botulinum bacteria spores in processed and refrigerated meats. A principal concern about sodium nitrite is the formation of carcinogenic
nitrosamines in meats containing sodium nitrite when meat is charred or overcooked.

We don't use preservatives in our Pork and most meat in Nigeria. It's always fresh.

I advise you understand the difference between Fresh and Processed Meat before making wild assumptions.

On parasites i have been eating pork every day in my house for years and I have slaughtered hundreds of pigs personally.
my kids are addicted to the tasty pork Sausages i make

I am yet to see or detect even using laboratory tests any worm in the meat.

My advice to you is to pick a topic you know a lot about through personal experience rather than making wild assumptions.

lol, so my post is mischievous simply becos i mentioned 2 negative things abt pork?!
so eating pork has no negative aspects?!
so the WHO report referred to ONLY PROCESSED MEAT?!
u didnt see d part abt RED MEAT?!
infact is it only the WHO report u read?!

y ar u choosing 2 ignore d RED MEAT stated in ALL d articles and reports i gave u?!
even d PROCESSED MEAT u'r talking abt, pls go tru everytin i av written, and tell me where i mentioned processed meat!
since we started dis exchange, i categorically used d terms PORK or RED MEAT, never PROCESSED MEAT!
d processed meat u'r talking abt is wat u got from the pictures i posted and u can clearly see dat nt only processed meat was mentioned. 4 d few places where processed meat was mentioned, red meat was also mentioned!
infact in my original article, i stated it clearly dat whatever problems pork might av, its NOT AN EXCLUSIVE PROBLEM and can generally b found in all meat (red meat). pls check my original article, and tell me i'm lying!

Agriculture / 5 Health Benefits Of Pork by naijagro: 11:42am On Feb 04, 2018
Pork is relatively cheaper than beef and chicken in Nigeria. Due to the fact that pork is forbidden in Islam and Judaism, it is almost nonexistent in some parts of the especially the north. In other places where it can be found it is cheaper than beef and chicken.
The vitamin B1 in pork is in high quantity. It is vital for growth and repair of muscles and nerve tissues, useful for carbohydrates metabolism as well. The presence of vitamin Riboflavin helps in maintaining skin and health problems. It repairs damaged tissues and extracts energy from food. Vitamin B6 present in pork meat helps in metabolism of fats, proteins and carbohydrates and keeps proper functioning of the nervous system. It is also important for the formation of red blood cells.
Pork meat helps in producing red blood cells in the body.
Iron in pork enhances production of energy and iron from meat is easily absorbed by the body. Zinc present in pork boosts the immune system and improves body resistance against numerous diseases. It is also essential for a healthy brain. It also contains phosphorus which is essential for body growth and maintenance.
Pork is a good source of protein and amino acids as is vital for people interested in body building. Intake of Pork also ensures better immunity due to presence of essential antioxidant.
On the negative side, consumption of both undercooked and overcooked pork should be avoided. Overcooked pork may contain carcinogenic substances, and undercooked (or raw) pork may harbor parasites.
There is the potential danger of trichinosis if the pork is not properly cooked. However, this disease is still pretty rare in people. Also, cooking the pork very well reduces this problem.
Some preparations like bacon and fatty cuts promote cholesterol build up and is full of saturated fat which results in clogging of the artery. Definitely not meant for everyday consumption and in uncontrolled portions.
The risks of pork consumption are largely the same as those of eating meat in general. That being said, moderate consumption of properly prepared pork can very well fit into a healthy diet.

Agriculture / Cattle Colonies Remain Best Option- Audu Ogbe by naijagro: 10:55am On Feb 04, 2018
The Hon Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbeh has said that the Federal Government is grieved and seriously concerned on the fatal dimension that the issue of the Herders-Crop farmers crisis is taking and assured that the Federal Government will leave no stone unturned to solve the problem.
The Minister made the remarks on Wednesday while receivingthe formal report of the National Livestock conference held on the 25th September, 2017 at the International Conference Centre, Abuja in which all key stakeholders in the Livestock sector participated. According to the Minister, Government’s proposal to set up Cattle Colonies and encouragement of ranches remain the best option to stop the killings and the toxic hatred that thecurrent altercation is generating; saying the wanton loss of lives is not acceptable, hence the need to take necessary steps that will permanently stop the killings, protect the farmers, as well as secure modern way of livelihood for the herdsmen. He also revealed that a Sensitization Programme to educate the herders, farmers and the communities including the politicians is underway.
“We have listened to what people have said and we recognizepeople’s rights to freedom of expression: but let me reiterate once again that the government is not seizing land of any Nigerian to give to Fulani herdsmen for them to colonize. The Programme is also not an appeasement of Fulanis at the detriment of crop farmers either”. He also refuted the allegation of sell out; warning that “if today, we as Government and citizens don’t find a practical solution to the problem as quickly as possible, it will get worse tomorrow”.
“We didn’t envisage how much high voltage emotion and politicking this issue has generated. It is one of our characteristics as a country that we live with. We needed to educate the herdsmen, educate every one of us of the need to move away from what we were doing before that is bringing conflict for many reasons; avoiding crisis and making this industry more productive. I know that the average herdsman is more concerned about the number of his herds than perhaps the milk coming out, about the speed the cattle can grow and the value of the meat, which is why he needs education. More than this, we also have the leaders,the politicians; we all need education on this”The Minister who praised the Committee for a good job has meanwhile announced that members of the Committee will play a major role in implementing the decision of the government after a quick study of the report. Other members of the Committee are Mr John Taiwo of the Departmentt of Animal Husbandry Services, Alhaji Auwal Maidabino of Planning and Policy Coordination, Mr Hammed Sanni of Food and Agricultural Organisation FAO, a representative of Kogi State Government and Engr. Kola Owolabi of the Federal Department of Agriculture of the Ministry.
Presenting the report to the Hon Minister, the Chairman of the Local Organising Committee, Dr Gideon Mshebwalla said the Committee identified lack of access to land, low productivity, old practice of open grazing, lack of access to finance, inadequate water provision, inefficient landholding, poor infrastructure and support facilities as well as low level of extension facilities as being the major factors militating against optimal development of the sector.The Committee recommended resuscitation of the grazing reserves, encouragement of private people to go into setting up ranches in addition to the Federal Government setting up of cattle colonies.The Committee also wanted Government to intervene in the provision of infrastructures and support services like roads, electricity, water, improved pasture and provision of extension services as well as empowering the Agricultural Research Institutes to invest on research that will be accessible to the end users.
