The Federal Government says it has established an online portal to ensure efficient and effective monitoring of its interventions in the Agricultural Sector.
The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Alhaji Muhammad Nanono, made the disclosure at the 44th Regular Meeting of the National Council of Agriculture and Rural Development on Thursday in Abuja.
Nanono said the initiative would capture the bio data of the farmers and link with geographical information of their farmed plots, crops and the volumes of production in the country.
“Unlike anything that has been done before, we set out to capture the bio data of the farmers and link this with the geographical information of their farmed plots, their crops and the volumes they produce.
“All these will feed into the monitoring and evaluation system of the project so that we can measure impact along the line.
“Although, we initially set out to capture the data of 2.4million farmers across the country, the results from the exercise have encouraged the Economic Sustainability Plan team to expand the data capture to 10 million farmers..
