In his presentation, Dr. Hassan Dalhatu  of the  Farm Input Support Department and focal person  in Kaduna,  harped  on the need to leverage on sustainable technology in the agriculture value chain.

He explained the importance and  how to use and apply organic fertilizers to food crops.

Dr. Dalhatu therefore, tasked participants and guests to make deliberate efforts at using quality seedlings to get yields worth their time and investments on their farms.

KADCCMA organised the workshop in  collaboration with the  Raw Materials Research and Development Council (RMRDC.

At the exhibition in the sidelines, variety of input and locally sourced  technology were on display to the delight of visitors 

The  Chief Host was  His Excellency,  Malam Nasir el-Rufai, Executive Governor  of Kaduna State, while  Special Guest of Honour at the workshop, was  Dr Mohammed Mahmood Abubakar.
