Nigerian Maize farmers receive 25 units of hand driven planter

Maize Association of Nigeria (MAAN) has received a donation of 25 units of Hand Driven Planters from Corteva Agriscience to further support and boost maize production in Nigeria.
MAAN received the machines on the sideline of the just concluded seed connect Africa 2021 conference and exhibition in Abuja Nigeria’s Capital city.
The hand held planter would ease the stress maize farmers go through while planting, save time as it is faster and also save cost as farmers won’t need to pay workers to plant.
The President of Maize Association of Nigeria Dr. Bello Abubakar said the company recognizes MAAN’s effort in the sub sector in recent times and decided to encourage maize farmers by donating the machines.
“They donated these planters to MAAN in order to encourage our Farmers and to complement what MAAN is doing now in production, to enhance means of production in Nigeria, so, that’s why they contributed their own quarter to maize production in Nigeria”
While appreciating Corteva Agriscience for the free will donation, Dr. Abubakar said MAAN would continue to partner with them to enhance maize production in the country.
