Blessing Allen-Adebayo is our Market Development Officer working in the Palm Oil Value Chain.

She was live on 92.7 KU FM @kufmnigeria, Benin, to speak on the importance of improved technology in the Palm oil sector and how we are improving access to finance to enable farmers buy technologies like the Mechanical Adjustable Harvester and the Malaysian Knife.
This was a prelude to a workshop we organized in partnership with National Institute for Palm Oil Research (NIFOR) to disseminate our findings on the adoption and viability of these machines.

We are helping Oil Palm farmers improve their technical skills through the use of innovative technologies through our Palm Oil Value Chain Project.

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.
Visit our website for more information about our economic development programs and projects. http://pindfoundation.org/

Manually processing Oil Palm fruits can be tasking on processors. This is why we have adopted appropriate technologies like the Small Scale Processing Equipment (SSPE) to reduce palm oil processing problems and increase production quantity.

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.

Palm Oil processors pressing digested Palm Fruit Fibre.
This is a part of processes required for converting Palm oil fruit bunches into edible Palm oil.
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.

Are you following the conversation around the dissemination of our report on the #EffectofNairaDevaluation on agricultural value chains in the Niger Delta? You can do so on twitter using our handle; @PINDFoundation.

This dissemination workshop is a collaboration between PIND and Markets Development in the Niger Delta (MADE). The first part of the dissemination was to donors in the region. The second part, coming up today (July 6, 2017) at 3pm, will be to the government.

Here are some pictures from the event. Swipe left for more.

#PINDPartnerships

We partnered with the Nigerian Institute for OilPalm Research (NIFOR) to train palm oil farmers and processors on Improved Processing Technology for better yield. This yield, usually around 11% with traditional processing methods, is increased to 15% when the Improved Processing Technology is used.
What does that mean in terms of profit? Each farmer gets to make about N13,500 more by simply using this technology.

The Small Scale Processing Equipment (SSPE) enables farmers and processors to produce palm oil quantities that are of significant commercial value by improving the process of oil extraction from palm fruits with an increase extraction rate of up to 15%. With this technology, palm oil farmers and processors can better maximize their produce and increase their income.
We can connect you to SSPE fabricators if you are in the Palm Oil business. Just send us an email; info@pindfoundation.org.

With improved technology, palm oil processing has become easier and more effective.

Watch the full video here https://youtu.be/5aJH13XAwpQ and learn how modern technology is improving palm oil processing.

PIND's Partners for Peace (P4P) team organized a sensitization/membership drive program at Umuorinoku, Ogbodi Ukwu, in Umuahia South LGA of Abia state for members of the Abia state P4P chapter on Saturday, July 22, 2017.
While traditionally an event to discuss the benefits of peace in the Niger Delta, P4P went a step further to discuss the economic benefits of being a P4P member.
35 people were trained on the efficacy of peace as a panacae for sustainable development of the community and then shown a demonstration of how the Mechanical Adjustable Harvester works in improving oil palm fruit yields.
Programs like this presents a practical understanding of why peace is important to the economic development in the Niger Delta.

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.

#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.

#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.

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.

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.
