Taraba farmers task govt on farm inputs subsidy

Farmers  in Taraba State have called on the state government to subsidize farm inputs to enable massive food production this season.Reports Daily Trust.
 The call was made by the chairman of the All Farmers Association in the state, Mr. Biam  Maman, during an interview in Jalingo.
He said the call  became  necessary in view of high cost of farm inputs such as fertilizer, pest chemicals and the cost of hiring tractors.
Acording to him,most farmers especially small scale farmers could not  afford to buy  the inputs, a development, he said, will reduce crop production in the state.
