January 7, 2022 - Author: Blessing Agada
The proposed soil tests across the six (6) geo-political zones of Nigeria, will follow the model used for Benue State where Students of the Faculty of Agriculture at 400 level (during their Industrial attachment) will be trained and assisted in soil sampling, testing and the documentation process. These students will gain practical knowledge of good agronomy skills that can be passed on to the others. The farmers and farmer groups will be purposefully selected along the lines of crop production of the test crop and soil susceptibility to erosion.
