Spain brings tomato crop technology to Nigeria

The Spanish company MGM will participate in sharing technology of tomato production with the Kwara province in Nigeria. This according to the general manager of the company, Jose Ismael Girona. The Innova Agribusiness Consortium, a partnership between an Extremadura company and a company from Madrid, will commence the project.

Apart from the technology to grow tomatoes, the technology to grow wheat is also shared with the population in the immediate vicinity. An investment of 56 million Euro for tomato cultivation on 1,500 hectares and wheat cultivation on 3,000 hectares will be made available.

There is an agreement with the regional government of Kwara, which provides farmers and the administration. Girona expects a positive impact on Kwara society, as the building of a school and a health center for 7,000 people are part of the project.
