Dizengoff partners CASE IH to assist Nigerian farmers
In its bid to improve farming substantially, as well as, revolutionise the Nigerian agricultural sector through mechanisation, Dizengoff Nigeria, is partnering CASE IH, a global leader in agricultural equipment manufacturer, in the area of providing quality tractors to Nigerian farmers.
Announcing this in Lagos, the CEO/Country Manager of Dizengoff Nigeria, Mr. Antti Ritvonen, said for Nigeria to achieve self-sufficiency in food production as a country, farmers need to embrace mechanisation in their farming activities, noting that a lot of farmers today still depend on hand tools, such as hoes and cutlasses, which are time consuming, laborious and very inefficient.
“We are very excited to be partnering with Case IH in the area of providing quality tractors to the Nigerian farmers, as we intend to improve farming substantially as well as revolutionize the Nigerian agricultural sector through mechanisation.
“We believe this partnership is very important to our farmers, as it will impact positively on their production. We are committed to selling the most reliable and productive agricultural equipment solutions available,” he said.
The Commercial Manager, Tractor and Implement, Mr. Damisa Enahoro said without any doubt, mechanisation is the solution every farmer needs to improve production and eliminating loss of time.
“Nigeria has the potential of becoming the food basket of Africa, and mechanisation is key to achieving it. This will invariably stimulate the overall economy of Nigeria. The partnership enables Dizengoff to get all its technicians and service team trained by CASE IH, with the sole aim of providing a robust after-sales support to its customers.”
Through its partnership with CASE IH, Dizengoff sells and supports its full range of tractors, including the JX and JXT Series of all- purpose machines ranging from 75 to 125 hp and further. Both Series are well suited for the Nigerian farmers looking for small, maneuverable, highly versatile tractors they can use for soil preparation, to operate implements and pull trailers, as well as for transport.
