By Mr. Onyeka Mbaso
In line with the thrust of the state to achieve more with less and leverage on strategic partnership, the JOSAN Ltd, a partnership between the state government and Jeseph Agro Ltd, has achieved a milestone in Anambra Rice Production with the resuscitation of Ufuma Rice project.
The Ufuma rice project, which has potentials for a two-season rice farming with irrigation facilities, had laid fallow for years until the latest intervention.
According to a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor, on Political Matters, Mr. Onyeka Mbaso, the totally refurbished Ufuma rice farm recorded a good harvest last farming season with farmers accreditation for dry season farming completed.
The Senior Special Assistant said with the height so far attained, the state is closer to achieving self sufficiency in rice production.
