Gombe State is partnering with the National Agricultural Land Development Authority to increase farming output during the dry season.
As part of this arraignment, four hundred hectares have been dedicated to year-round wheat production.
Two thousand farmers across Gombe State are billed to benefit from advanced training and implements.
Government records show that between 65-70 percent of residents of Gombe State engage in farming.
This is similar to many states, yet Nigeria remains a net importer of food.
Farmer-herder clashes, banditry, insurgency, and climate change have all taken a toll on agricultural activities in Nigeria.
Gombe State and the federal agency responsible for agricultural land development are turning their attention to dry season farming.
If farmers can cultivate and harvest on the same land twice or thrice each year, productivity is bound to increase.
