During the last planting season, NFGCS harvested about 30,000 tubers of Yam. They were all sold at N300.
This season, with more hectarage farmed, NFGCS is looking at a harvest of more than 200,000 tubers of Yam. There was therefore a need to establish a Milling Unit which can process these tubers into Yam Flour to be sold in the market.
The fascinating fact about the NFGCS Processing Facilities is that they are all made with local resources and technology. So, watch out, Ga’ate Gold Elobo and Poundo Yam will be in the shelf in your closest super markets soon.
