A Nigeria-based agric firm, Seed Co has concluded plans to introduce into the market hybrid seeds for wheat, millet, fruits, and vegetables.

Managing Director of the company, Kolade Dada disclosed this at the firm’s recently held 2022/2023 grand finale to showcase the company’s climate-smart and disease-tolerant crop varieties in Kaduna State.

The event hosted in the firm’s facility located in the southern part of the state capital was attended by farmers, agric regulating agencies, and community heads among others.

Dada noted that with technology-driven farming methods, particularly, adopting the use of hybrid seeds, Nigeria could attain the level of cultivating six metric tonnes of maize, rice, and other critical products per hectare.

“We are also diversifying our products which include commercial crops such as soybean, rice, wheat, sorghum, fruits, and vegetables, leveraging technology and investing in cold room storage facilities for effective seed storage.

“We have toured around 17 states connecting framers to how best they can upwardly boost their products using our hybrid seeds.

“We want more believers to adopt our methods to increase their livelihoods in the face of difficult terrain and harsh climatic conditions which are unfavourable to the storage of seeds.

“It is our pleasure to introduce to Nigerian farmers seeds that are resistant to harsh climate and could yield beyond expectations.

” We have adopted the use of renewable energy like solar in our plants to reduce our carbon imprints and its effects on global warming so we could contribute our quota in ensuring a safer and friendly environment for food production,” he assured.
