Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello, the governor of Niger state, has reported about the local government plans to produce one million metric tonnes of rice during dry season. 

According to Chief Audu Ogbeh, the minister of agriculture and rural development, the state expects the federal government to provide ........irrigation equipment to rice farmers.

Solar power water pumping machines, small rice milling facilities, threshers and combined harvesters will ease rice processing and allow to self sustain its production. Subesquently, it would bring down the price of the commodity in the open market. 

The plans were made public during the inspection of the rice farms cultivated under the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Anchor Borrowers Programme in Danchitagi, the Lavun local government area.
