In achieving one of our core focus areas, participants were mobilised across the Parishes for a day seminar on Jathropha farming and Plethora Farms.
Jathropha is an economic plant that produces bio-fuel and is used for several things including oil that treats skin diseases. Aninvestment firm known as Plethora Farmswas equally engaged to carry out an awareness seminar for farmers and those who are interested to learn different types of farming. Plethora Farms is into buying and selling farm produce e.g. grains, beans and the establishment of greenhouse. They also carry out extension work and training. DPI/JDPC and the two firms are about signing anMoU for partnership.
