The FADAMA Office in Anambra state, South east Nigeria has advised farmers, whose farmlands were experiencing erosion to consult expertise advice in order to salvage their crops.

Mr Chukwuka Egbueh, the Anambra Coordinator of FADAMA, gave this advice in an interview with Journalists on Friday in Awka.

According to him, the FADAMA office has agriculture experts and extension agents, who consult for free on ways to tackle the devastation caused by erosion

“Farmers have been told to consult these experts from our office for free in order to train them on how to avoid loss of their crops.

“Just last Tuesday, Governor Willie Obiano started giving out farm implements to youths we have trained for FADAMA GUYS project,” he added.

Egbueh said that over 80 percent of agricultural project had been completed in the state.

“Most of the projects we embarked upon are almost completed for the fact that Federal and State Governments were committed to the success of the farm project.

“In the next dry season, the irrigation sites will be used by farmers for massive food production,” he explained.
