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.
Farmers enumerated but without BVN and bank accounts are encouraged to hasten to the nearest bank to open bank accounts and get BVN in order to benefit.
Farmers not yet enumerated are also encouraged to cooperate with the ADP’s and enumerators to get enumerated on their farms.
