Tomato Growers, Processors & Marketers Association of Nigeria in collaboration with Russell IPM Ltd & Agronetng presents a 1-day regional workshop on ‘Sustainable control of Tuta Absoluta Tomato Pest on Wed 29 June at Royal Tropical Hotel Kano
At the end of this workshop, tomato farmers will be armed with knowledge about the ravaging Tuta Absoluta
Workshops such as this are required to educate our farmers. By so doing, we will not just be saving our nation from food scarcity but also ensure quality food production. Our farmers will also get deserving rewards for their labour.
This workshop will be hosted in Kano because it’s the largest producer of tomatoes in Nigeria.
Having this kind of workshop earlier would have saved our nation from the MASSIVE damage caused by this TINY pest Tuta Absoluta
Biorational solutions only costs a fraction of what tomato farmers lost to Tuta Absoluta epidemic
Russell IPM Ltd UK has the most effective bio-rational solution and Agronetng is the sole distribution partner in Nigeria
Russell IPM Ltd’s biorational has been demonstrated at Tenti Farms, a 25 hectares of greenhouse farm based in Jos, Plateau State where tomatoes and peppers are primarily grown.
Head Agronomist at the farm, Odunayo Orowumi, said: “In the past, our farm has been devastated by the Tuta absoluta pest and despite trying a number of conventional pesticides, the moth caused complete losses in our greenhouses.” After seeking the help of Agronetng, they began applying the Russell IPM Ltd solution within their greenhouses, and obtained excellent results!
