OCP Africa and Syngenta Foundation partner to increase Nigerian tomato production

OCP Africa, a global leading company in the production and exportation of phosphate-based fertilizers, has extended its partnership with Syngenta Foundation for Sustainable Agriculture (SFSA). The aim is to boost tomato production in Nigeria.

The partnership should also increase Nigeria’s food security by enhancing tomato production techniques and creating a viable and sustainable business model and linkages around the value chain.

The OCP Africa’s Head of Business Development and Digital Projects, Akintunde Akinwande, has stated that 20 greenhouses have been established across major tomato production areas in Jigawa, Kano, Kaduna, Nasarawa and Abuja. There, over 20,000 farmers should be able to access quality seedlings and inputs as well as good agricultural practice trainings on modern production techniques as well as linkages to off take markets and processors.

According to Akinwande, the two organizations entered the partnership to leverage their capacities and experience to address challenges that hampered the improvement and consistency in quality of farm yields and two years down the line.
