The All Farmers Association of Nigeria has said it is determined to assist farmers to boost food production capacity in the country.

The President of AFAN, Farouk Mudi, said the association would empower farmers across the country with the knowledge and resources needed to engage in all-year-round farming.

He made the promise at the presentation of 12 tractors to farmers in Oyo State, according to a statement by AFAN on Thursday.

Mudi said the cultivation of food crops should no longer be limited to the rainy season, saying all-year-round farming, coupled with mechanisation and modern agriculture practices, would ensure increased output.
