The Federal Government has commenced the disbursement of fertilizer Subsidy Fund
to Small Holder Vulnerable Farmers in Nigeria.
The shortlisted farmers have been enumerated in the database of the FMARD in
collaboration with ADP staff, under the ESP and AFJP.
However, some farmers do not have bank accounts linked to their BNV and advised
those that fall in that category that the only way to receive payment is to get a bank
account that connects with their bank verification number on or before 7th July 2021.
According to the statement published, the disbursement will be in batches, starting with
Batch A, covering 1,209,143 farmers, with a total subsidy of N6, 154,802,000. This
will enable the farmer to source fertilizer in the open market.
The Senior Special Assistant for President on Agriculture in person of Andrew Kwasari,
express his gratitude to the federal government of Nigeria.
