The commitment of Governor Rauf Aregbesola’s administration to raise agriculture from subsistence to mechanized farming is one of the major reasons for sending 20 youths to Germany.

The governor stated this at a send-off ceremony for Batch A of 40 youths being sponsored to Germany for advanced training in agriculture and food production technology the in State of Saxony-Anhalt, Germany.

According to the governor, this training is in continuation of government’s drive to revolutionise agriculture in the state under the Osun Rural Enterprise and Agriculture Programme (O’REAP) and boost food productions for local consumption as well as export.

He said the administration is providing the necessary infrastructure and support for farmers with inputs, which requires supplying them with inputs such as improved seedlings, fertilizer and fumigants among others; giving them hundreds of thousands of hectares of already prepared farmlands

Besides, he added that government is liaising with reputable local and international partners –such as Institute for Agricultural Research and Training (IRA&T), and International Institute for Tropical Agriculture (IITA), at Ibadan – for assistance in the area of technical knowledge that will boost production and make farming easier, more interesting and more profitable.

The trainees will undergo a four-week intensive course in an agricultural training school where they will be exposed to the rudiments of modern agriculture and food crop production techniques.

This will also be followed by another eight weeks of attachment trainings under 11 large-scale co-operative farmers in Saxony-Anhalt to enable them to learn more and build on the assessed capacities and interests they have acquired during the first four weeks of training.
