Fascination of Plants Day 2013

The second international "Fascination of Plants Day" will be launched under the umbrella of the European Plant Science Organisation (EPSO). The goal of this activity is to get as many people as possible around the world fascinated by plants and enthused about the importance of plant science for agriculture, in sustainably producing food, as well as for horticulture, forestry, and all of the non-food products such as paper, timber, chemicals, energy, and pharmaceuticals. The role of plants in environmental conservation will also be a key message.

  • Exhibit plants
  • See plants,
  • Learn more about rare plants
  • Buy plants

ATA Will Restore Nigeria’s Lost Glory - Agric Minister

The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Dr. Akinwumi Adesina (CON) represented by his Technical Assistant, Dr. Mathew Fregene delivering the former’s speech while eminent personalities listen attentively.

The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Dr. Akinwumi Adesina (CON) represented by his Technical Assistant, Dr. Mathew Fregene delivering the former’s speech while eminent personalities listen attentively.

The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Dr. Akinwumi Adesina (CON) has assured that the Agricultural Transformation Agenda (ATA) of President Goodluck Jonathan’s Administration will restore the nation’s lost glory, through maximum utilisation of the socio, economic potentials of Root and Tuber crops in the
country.

structural development, market infrastructures and political will, to rebuild the nation’s agriculture and achieve drastic reductions in poverty like it happened in China, Brazil, Thailand and Malaysia.

According to him, the corrective measure is imperative because the nation, “with an excellent climate for crop production and with only 42 percent of its 79 million of hectares of arable land under cultivation”, can no longer be expending a whooping sum of N1.2 trillion on importation of wheat, rice, sugar, fish and others.

Consequently, Dr. Adesina said the Federal Government remained committed to the exploration of the socio, economic potentials of root and tuber crops, in stemming the tide of food crisis in the country.

Besides, the Minister further informed that Government’s intervention through ATA include the launch of 20 percent High Quality Cassava Flour (HQCF) in Cassava bread and 30 to 40 percent HQCF of other confectionaries, 50 percent support for two bags of fertilizer and 100 percent support for seeds to farmers through Government Growth Enhancement Support (GES).

Also speaking, Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun said his administration is definite in its approach to agriculture.

Senator Amosun who was represented by his Deputy, Chief Segun Adesegun said the State Government was committed to ensuring that the people of the State can feed themselves through Agriculture.

He expressed confidence, that in the next four years, the State Government will start exporting Garri (Cassava Flakes) and other local produce, so as to boost foreign earnings.

In his Welcome Address, the University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Olusola Bandele Oyewole said “FUNAAB has invested heavily on result oriented pro-poor impact oriented market approach through information gathering, dissemination and provision of basic technological infrastructure to small-holder farmers and processors”.

Besides, the Vice-Chancellor stressed that the University has demonstrated innovative approaches to value addition on agricultural commodities, most especially cassava.

Professor Oyewole further disclosed that FUNAAB in partnership with various institutions has developed appropriate post harvest technologies for the processing of root and tuber crops, adding that this was attested to by Calestrus Fuma in her book, The New Harvest Agricultural Innovation in Africa.

According to him, FUNAAB’s partnership with the International Institute for Tropical Agriculture (IITA) produced two (2) major landmarks research efforts, namely the soyabean research and the cassava flash-dryer development.
