What We Do

Land Survey / Acquisition and Allocation

In our quest to harness the vast potentials of the Nigerian Land, we are tasked with acquiring, surveying, and parcelling lands to farmers, the more farmers we have cultivating, the higher our economic output as a nation.

Subsidy & Grant Distribution

For new and old farmers, we are required to provide assistance in allocating subsidies and grants to farmers, we are mandated to give Technical Support, and subsidies to mechanize farming operations in the Nigerian farm lands.

Youth and Women Empowerment

We believe that the future belong to the youth, and the importance of making agriculture attractive to our citizens, especially the youth is not lost on us, we believe in catching them young, and in that spirit we organize seminars and workshops to teach new and innovative farming techniques.

Our Programmes

In accordance with our mandate, we have set up some programmes to hit the ground running in fulfilling our mandate

National Young Farmers Scheme

Under this programme, NALDA will focus on encouraging the Nigerian youth to participate in agriculture. This projects final goal would be to encourage, empower and guide 1000 farmers from each of the 774 LGAs in Nigeria each year. This programme is intended to cut accross all facets of agriculture. The Pilot programme will start with empowering 100 young farmers from 3 LGAs in 16 states of the country for a total of 4,800 new young farmers, including the FCT.

Women In Agriculture

At NALDA, we believe that women are an integral part of the workforce, and so we intend to empower women in agriculture. We plan to profile, engage and train women to take part in fish farming and aquaculture. We will provide the feeds, the medicines and access to clean water to ensure optimal production. We will also empower Processors to help process the outputs according to domestic and international standards.

Back to Farm Initiative

Under this initiative, we intend to drum up awareness in the populace, highlighting the importance of going back to the farm, as farming the NALDA way has been made attractive by incorporating new and innovative methods of farming. We will be in cahoots with various paramilitary outfits in the country, along with our NYSC, and various professionals and associations.

Agro Input Intervention

This intervention will be geared towards active farmers to help them expand, we will provide subsidies in collaboration with the Agricultural Development Project, Value Chain Actors, State Ministries of Agriclture and Co-operative bodies.
