Newly Harvest Maize

A Moroccan firm, OCP Africa, has launched its School Lab project in Bauchi State to boost the yield and income of 10,000 smallholder farmers in 70 communities in the state.
The project operates in a caravan of trucks and provides mobile interactive training sessions on good agricultural practices for rural farmers, using live demos and animated videos. 


Manned by trained personnel, it offers farmers on-site soil testing, to determine the peculiar needs of the soil and fertiliser recommendations.

It also advises farmers on the right kind of fertiliser to use and the best time for its application. 

Bauchi State governor, Mohammed Abdullahi Abubakar, while launching the initiative in the state at the weekend, noted that the school was the first of its kind launched by a fertiliser producer in Africa.
At Nabordo, Toro Local Government Area of the state, where the flag-off held, Abubakar commended OCP for choosing Bauchi State as its centre of operation.
