Greenhouse technology training for Nigerian farmers by Dizengoff

Dizengoff Nigeria, a member of the Balton CP Group, recently conducted a two-day workshop for farmers and entrepreneurs in and around Lagos on the use of its greenhouse technology for fresh vegetable production. This was written in the Niogerian Tribune

The training, which was organised for some private farmers in the state, was both in theory and field demonstration, focusing on the production and post-harvest management of vegetables such as tomatoes, pepper and cucumber using the greenhouse technology.

Patrick Ohaji, Divisional Head, Dizengoff Nigeria, explained during the training that “the concept of the Dizengoff greenhouse technology, otherwise called ‘Dizengoff Farmers Kit,’ is aimed at providing farmers with an all-year-round technique to produce and increase the yields of greenhouse crops, such as tomatoes, pepper, cucumber and sweet-melon, as well as provide steady incomes for the farmers. It also involves transfer of knowledge to the farmers to improve the quality of their produce, reduce field losses and ensure higher profits.”

Currently, a number of farmers who have adopted the Dizengoff Farmer’s Kit have already expressed satisfaction over high productivity from the system and most of them believe that with the increased demands for such crops in the market, the kit will help meet these rising demands.
