The Federal Government has approved the Fertilizer Subsidy Grant for the 1st batch of FMARD AFJP smallholder farmers. Farmers whose BVN has been validated by NIBSS will be credited directly to their bank account.
Payment processing for FMARD AFJP Farmers begins this week as beneficiaries are been notified of ways to process their payment. Below is a message sent to a beneficiary.
Dear AFJP Farmer,
You have qualified for Fertilizer Subsidy Grant by Federal Government. Get a bank account before 07-07-2021 to process your payment. FMARDPACE
However, some farmers do not have bank accounts linked to their BVN 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.
FMARD has the mandate to ensure food security in crop, livestock and fisheries, stimulate agricultural employment and services, promote the production and supply of raw materials to agro industries, provide markets for the products of the industrial sector, generate foreign exchange and aid rural socio-economic development”
