We signed a memorandum of understanding with the Niger Delta Development Commission (@nddcofficial) on May 24, 2017, to provide technical assistance in identifying, designing and implementing agricultural value chain projects in the Niger Delta. We were excited to have signed the MoU because we believe in the economic development of the Niger Delta and pledge to continue to encourage development in the region.

Many farmers would improve the quality and quantity of their yield if they continually learned evolving agricultural best practices and methods.
This is why we make it our priority to train and retrain farmers in the #NigerDelta on best practices for #CassavaValueChain, #PalmOilValueChain and #AquacultureValueChain.

Meet Blessing Allen-Adebayo, our #PalmOil #MarketDevelopment Officer. For the past few weeks, she's been conducting an #economicanalysis of #oilpalm clusters in the #NigerDelta to ascertain their viability, and this has taken her across the region conducting interviews and sharing the PIND models that have worked in several states. This research will help us figure out the needs of these clusters, and what #partnerships would be needed to make them the strong economic powerhouses they can be.

From our work in the #PalmOilValueChain, we have learned that more women in the Niger Delta readily adopt Best Management Practices (BMP) of oil palm farming than men do. This is in spite of the land ownership problems women face in many areas of the Niger Delta.

Mrs. Helen Olaoye, an oil palm farmer, shares what she has learned from adopting the Best Management Practices PIND taught her about oil palm farming.

#MondayMotivation:

Ikechukwu Umeaku has been in the #business of dealing #agricultural equipment for more than 18 years. Recently, through a PIND demonstration, Umeaku was introduced to STIHL’s motorized harvester. This new equipment transformed how Umeaku sees #NigerDelta #agriculture and the palm oil value chain.

Umeaku’s engagement with PIND connected him to a  network of #palmoil farmers. He has decided to sell the harvester at cost to minimize the constraints palm farmers face in #financing and adopting the #technology. Now a fervent promoter of the motorized harvester and the results it  produces, Umeaku travels to palm fields to show his #customers how to use the harvester, especially those who remain skeptical of the technology. “Since we started selling we have  not had any problems with customers or any complaints,” Umeaku shared. TEXMACO has now brought in machines to the value of NGN 18 million.

We conduct varying researches with the aim of improving the quantity and quality of Palm oil derived from every yield and helping farmers earn more money.

#PINDFoundation, with the National Institute for Oil Palm Research (#NIFOR) helped train 5 local #engineers from the pilot farming cluster in #ImoState in creating the locally-invented Small-Scale Processing Equipment (#SSPE) with an extraction rate of up to 15%. With this #technology, palm oil #farmers and #processors can better maximize their produce and increase their #income. The 15% extraction rate is a significant improvement on the basic processing equipment which has an extraction rate of 11%. by up to 13,500 Naira for each person directly involved in the industry.

Did you know we disseminated our Naira devaluation report yesterday (July 6, 2017) to donors, government representatives and the press? The report focused on the #EffectsofNairaDevaluation
on the Aquaculture, Cassava, Palm oil and Poultry value chains in the Niger Delta.
Here are photos of some of the government representatives at the workshop.

In attendance were the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (FMARD), Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs (MNDA), nigerian Institute of Oil Palm Research (NIFOR) and Ministry of Trade and Investment.

Field demonstration on the use of Mechanical Adjustable Harvester which happened yesterday, June 29, 2017, at the Agbarho oil palm cluster in Delta State.

The first picture shows the operator demonstrating the use of the machine, the second picture shows the local climbers trying out the machine.

Our Executive Director, Dr. Dara Akala speaking at the Solidaridad West Africa Workshop on 'Harnessing the Potentials of Nigeria's Oil Palm Sector: Benefiting from the Lessons and Results of the Sustainable West Palm Oil Programme (SWAPP)'. Dr. Dara spoke about PIND's work with #PalmOilValueChain in the Niger Delta and urged the continuance of some form of the SWAPP project in Nigeria.

SWAPP is a four-year programme funded by the Dutch and is implemented in #Ghana, #Nigeria and #IvoryCoast with focus on increasing the productivity and profitability of #Small to #Medium #Scale #Enterprises in the Palm Oil Sector.
The workshop was a close-out workshop for the Solidaridad SWAPP project and an opportunity to disseminate what they had done in the #PalmOil sector. The event happened at Transcorp Hilton, Abuja on Thursday, May 4, 2017.
