The Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO), said it has distributed irrigation water pumps and fertilisers to 4,000 farmers in Borno State, to restore livelihood in the agriculture and livestock sectors.

According to a 2018 post-harvest survey, FAO dry season support generated over N186.10million from farmers’ sale of crops, including rice, tomatoes, and onions.

FAO’s representative in Nigeria, Suffyan Koroma, disclosed this recently while distributing farm inputs for the 2019/20 dry season farming at Farm Centre, Maiduguri, the state capital.
