Good news : Nigeria, Germany to partner on mechanised farming

Nigerian Incentive Based Risk Sharing System for Agricultural Lending (NIRSAL) and German Agribusiness Alliance (GAA), have agreed to work together to revamp agribusiness and help Nigerian farmers engage in mechanised farming.

Speaking at the weekend at the end of the investment workshop between NIRSAL and German Agribusiness Alliance (GAA) for local farmers in Abuja, NIRSAL Managing Director, Mr Aliyu Abdulhameed, said “the relationship between NIRSAL and GAA is to bring equipment, technology and standard for Nigerian farmers.”

Abdulhameed said Nigerian farmers need to be empowered in all ramifications, noting that “what NIRSAL is doing today is to ensure that all the risks in crop production have been eliminated or reduced to their minimum to ensure that farmers get good returns.” We need equipment capital, technology capital and the brain capital to be able to design and deliver projects and all these must be supported by government.”

After the workshop, NIRSAL and GAA will sign a framework of understanding that will facilitate the broader agreement to be signed later. According to Abdulhameed, the partnership will see German equipment manufacturers bring samples to showcase for Nigerian farmers and demonstrate how to use them on their farms.

The leader of German delegations, Frank Nordman, said the whole idea of the partnership is to assist Nigerian farmers to be able to produce enough food to feed the about 200 million local population as well as meeting European standard for food item export to Europe and other countries.
