The Indian High Commissioner to Nigeria, Ambassador. Ajjampur Ghanashyam has urged Nigeria to introduce Integrated Farming and Drip Irrigation to boost food production in the country.

Ghanashyam gave the advice at a Forum of the News Agency of Nigeria  in Abuja.

According to him, drip irrigation, currently being practiced in India, would help to improve dry season farming in Nigeria, especially in the Northern parts of the country.

 He said the introduction of drip irrigation and integrated farming would encourage export.

He said “Agriculture is one area in which there is tremendous potential. India has 1.5 million square kilometers of land which is arable”.

He noted that “Drip irrigation is one subject which was  developed in India and has now become very popular stressing that this is exactly what is required in Nigeria.
