Currently, the Federal Government is implementing its Agricultural Transformation Agenda (ATA) through complementary programme interventions which aim to solve, in a holistic and integrated manner, the constraints and weaknesses that have for very long held down agricultural development. The ATA seeks to grow and develop agriculture as a business and thereby create jobs, assure food security, promote private sector investments for wealth creation and maximize agriculture sector contribution to the country’s economic growth. Growth Enhancement Scheme (GES) is one of the major implementation strands for the ATA.
The GES is designed to enhance agricultural productivity through timely, efficient and effective delivery of yield-increasing farm inputs. GES provides a unique connecting link as it targets the farmers directly with critically needed modern farm inputs on real-time basis.
