The Netherlands-African Business Council (NABC) is coordinating the “Tailor-Made Training Plus” (TMT+) programme, where academics and educational professionals from the Bayero University Kano (BUK) and the Centre for Dryland Agriculture (CAD) receive advanced training to close the gap between agriculture theory and practice. The programme is funded by the Dutch government and executed by NABC, Delphy BV, Kucheza, Verbos Academy and the Leventis Foundation. In total, 22 agriculture education professionals will be trained on topics as: entrepreneurship, post-harvest storage, water management and quality control.
As part of educating the trainees on seed multiplication and certification, the trainees visited NASC HQ on Thursday June 3, 2021. They were taken through the rudiments of seed certification and all other activities of the Council. The trainees were also taken on a tour of the facilities at NASC.
The visit was aimed at benefiting the trainees both in their professional capacity as well as for the students and farmers they work with, in order to create a healthier and more prosperous agricultural environment in Nigeria.
