Salad Greenhouse Worldwide Ltd. held a short workshop for farmers and government officials on 5th December 2017 in Kaduna. Peter McAlpine, Marketing Manager of Artemis & Angel Co. Ltd., talked to the farmers about the benefits of Salad Green Bio-Plant and Salad Green Pro-Plant and how to use them; and he presented information about field tests already carried out in Nigeria, which resulted in higher crop yields and a higher quality of produce without any insect and disease problems. An important part of the message for the farmers was that the farming problems they face will not disappear until they restore the microbial life and fertility of their soil.
The farmers spoke about the problems resulting from chemical agriculture, which they said made them poor. They pointed out that they did not know what to do to solve their crop problems until now. The participants left the meeting with hope for a brighter future with 100% organic agriculture using Salad Green Bio-Plant and Salad Green Pro-Plant.
The meeting was attended by 50+ people, who showed great interest in changing to either bio-chemical farming or 100% organic farming with the bio-fertilisers.
