He added that agriculture is a major fulcrum of the Governor Godwin Obaseki-led administration, which informed the increased interest in attracting and sustaining investments in the sector.

According to him, “The programme will present a good opportunity for farmers to be exposed to equipment and tools for commercial agriculture and provide them with options for expansion.”

The programme is tagged Farmers’ Open Day and will feature exhibition of tractors and implements, greenhouse, agro-consumables, knapsack sprayer and open filed irrigation, among others.
