"Knowledge sharing session on the results of the research and adoption strategies"
The last part of the project involves a knowledge sharing session with the farmers on the results of the research and discussions on ways to adopt the environmentally smart methods, for more profit and a healthier planet which is due this week.
This will require us travel to Kogi state which is almost impossible due to the restrictions on inter-state travel in Nigeria.
To this end, we are proposing a Zoom webinar on Tuesday, 30th June, 2020. While we acknowledge that not all rural farmers would be present, we are relying on the attendance of representatives of the Rice Farmers Association of Nigeria (RIFAN), rice millers (who are automatic off takers of the farmers' harvest), agricultural extension workers and other stakeholders along the rice value chain. This we hope to disseminate the inofrmation even beyind the geographical scope of the project.
