FG approves employment of 30,000 graduates for NALDA program

The Federal Government has given approval to the National Agricultural and Land Development Agency (NALDA) to permanently employ some 30,000 agricultural and other science graduates to handle soil test and other responsibilities for the agency.

They will be trained intensively for two weeks on soil sample collection and soil testing,” The process which has commence will be done in collaboration with the Nigerian institute of Soil Science, the state governments, adding that the graduates will be engaged full time.

The NALDA boss stressed that over the years, farmers don’t have knowledge of their soil potentials and challenges in terms of nutrients requirement and treatment noting that those employed, apart from soil testing, will advise farmers. If there are challenges or issues, they will take the samples to the lab in order to know what the problem is and guide the farmers appropriately.

Farmers will pay as low as N500 per soil sample collected and analysed while each of the employees after the training, will be equipped with the necessary tools to transmit information collected into the agency’s national data base.


Please note that this programme is community based and interested participants must contact NALDA offices in their states.
