Farmers across the state of Osun have been urged to be fully prepared for the new planting season which is fast approaching through the prompt clearing of their farmland.
This is contained in a statement signed by the Commissioner for Agriculture and Food Security in the state, Hon.Wale Adedoyin .
The statement stressed further that farmers should avail themselves the opportunity of getting their various farm inputs at subsidised rate under the O-REAP programme which is an initiative of the Ogbeni Aregbesola administration aimed at banishing hunger in the state as entrenched in the six integral action plan of the government.
He then enjoined farmers in the state to visit Agro-centres under OSSADEP in towns like Iwo, Ilesha and Oke Osun in Osogbo to get their farm inputs such as maize seed, N-P-K, fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, insecticides and sprayers so as to be ready for the new planting season.
