Written by

The AgResult Aflasafe Pilot Project of the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA), Ibadan, has commenced the training of maize farmers on the use of aflasafe control and strategies to promote stability in the production of the crop.

The Project Director, Dr Debo Akande, stated at the opening of the three-day programme, in ibadan that the training was centred on pre-harvest management of aflatoxin and aflasafe , a bio-control herbicide application.

Akade noted that the training will focus on maize agronomy, in boosting productivity and post-harvest safety measures to sustain maize grain quality.

According to him, the project would also address measures to reduce aflatoxin, a virus that attacks maize and groundnuts.

The Director said the project was organised to show that the private sector could participate in agribusiness and agricultural innovation delivery to control how farmers access the available technologies.
