Okunland Farmers’ Development Initiative

Registration No: CAC/IT/No 79119 of July 07, 2015 is a Non-Governmental, Non-Political, Non-Sectarian and Not-For-Profit Organisation with Head office in Odo-Eri, Yagba West LGA, Kogi State and field offices in other parts of Nigeria.

Agriculture remains a core concern of the rural community, hence farmers need to be targeted to benefit from development initiatives. Despite the fact that smallholder farmers play key role in nation building and food security, they face numerous challenges including difficulties in accessing cultivable lands; improved seeds and seedlings; accessing other input and financial services; agricultural extension and technology transfer; lack the experience and knowledge of market information; lack business management and entrepreneurial skills; lack information about weather conditions.
