Enugu State Agricultural Development Programme (ENADEP) and the farmers’ associations in the state have strategised ways to boost agricultural production in the state.
Programme Manager of ENADEP, Dr Ogbonna Onyeisi, disclosed this in an interactive session with the farmers at the agency’s headquarter, Friday in Enugu.
Onyeisi said it was important for ENEDEP to have cordial relationship with farmers in the state.
