Flood: Govt. urges farmers to insure farms
Mr Adegboyega Adefarati, the Ondo State Commissioner for Agriculture, on Wednesday urged farmers in the state to register their farms with the agricultural insurance scheme to avoid total loss after natural disasters.
Adefarati gave this advice after the tour of rice and vegetable farms destroyed by flood at Ogbese and Uso in Akure North and Owo Local Government Areas (LGAs) of the state.
The tour was to assess the extent of destruction to the farmlands and the kind of assistance required to alleviate the farmers’ losses.
