The United Nations Food Agricultural Organisation (FAO) has graduated 25 Farmers Field School (FFS) facilitators to restore agriculture-based livelihoods for food security and employment in the Northeast.
The participants were drawn from organisations in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe States.
Speaking at the end of three-week training in Maiduguri, Borno State, FAO, Head of Programme, Michael Oyat said farmers’ field schools are useful platform for knowledge sharing and capacity building for farmers to overcome challenges in the long run.
He urged the facilitators to use the skills effectively, as FAO embarks on the next step of establishing Farmer Field Schools groups in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe States.
