Rice Farming

Every year Nigerians consume around 5.5 million tonnes of rice, 3.6 million tonnes of it is locally produced ? mostly by farmers for personal consumption.



rice processing

The land itself is the most essential capital asset for a rice farmer and its worth tends to vary on the basis of the drainage facilities, type of soil and location.

1. Select a site in ecological zones where rice is grown traditionally
2. Choose fertile land with good water retention capacity (containing some clay and/or organic matter i.e. loamy soil).
3. If you have to grow rice for one or more consecutive years on the same land, get the advice of a reputable soil-testing agency.
4. Grow legumes after rice, and plough rice residues into the soil as organic matter and fertilizer.

I love to always be in the epicenter of the events, and then tell the world about it in the most diverse forms.I believe that many rules are created in order to break them in an attempt to create something new.Many of us sometimes need to stop for a moment, perhaps lose something in order to rethink our existence and understand in which direction we need to move.In addition to blogging, I am fond of music composing, traveling, self-studying and meditation. I sincerely believe that if you go your own way and listen to your inner voice, you will definitely come where you were going!
