GES SCHEME
Ten thousand (10,000) dry season farmers will be supported with the
required inputs and equipment under the New Agricultural transformation
and self help initiative (NATASHI) programme. The state distributed 5
metric tones of Sippi variety of rice to farmers free of charge.

and safeguard precaution measures.

46,938 farmers in the state under GES scheme. This represents 61% of the

PROBLEMS
This has been fully privatised under Private Partnership Arrangement
(PPA) . Cooperative associations in the state under the F.G Community
tractor hiring service programme have paid 10% deposit totaling
N161,621,350 For 226 units of tractors, Only 113 units have been received
in 2010/2011, the remaining balance of 153 is yet to be received. The
brands of tractors under the programme include Messy Ferguson,
Mahindra and Styer. The cost of tillage per hectare ranges from N5,000 to
N6,000 for ploughing and ridging. Harrowing is rarely done by farmers in
the state.
Quiler birds attached millet, rice and late millet in the state. The federal
and state govts. intervened by aerial spray while individuals devised birds
scaring means. These efforts yielded about 70% control.
Stem borer infested late millet which resulted into low production of the
crop.
At the beginning of the wet season the state experienced flood along the
Rima river, river Zamfara and river Niger banks. This flood affected the
production of crops along these banks.
