NGADA Commences Planting of ‘Special Foreign Beans’ Variety in Taraba


The Coordinator NGADA Special Development Area,  Rev. (Hon.) Nagombe Joseph Titus has hinted on plans to launch a new breed of foreign beans to Taraba State next year in its bids to fight malnutrition and improves its internally generated revenue.


Nagombe  said the special variety of beans  being planted In Tsokuwa Haruna of NGADA could  only be found in USA and Israel.


According to him, the beans is at a 'demo' stage in NGADA which by next year will be available for circulation to other parts of the state with favorable soil where it will yield well for further multiplication so as to have it in our markets within and outside the state.


He said the new beans is highly nutritious to soyabeans and other related beans. "The beans being so nutritious can be eaten when cooked alone, cooked as soup, cooked mixed with other grains etc. The beans can also be eaten by malnourished children so as to recover faster. Some companies are in high demand for the beans in Nigeria. With the beans, children and people who have challenges of malnutrition can get succor. NGADA is naturally blessed with fertile land that can be used for the cultivation of different types of crops and we are tapping into these for our people."


"We are adopting several means to diversify our income in NGADA , in 2017 we kick-started the planting of Cocoa in Amburu, established Eucalyptus tree in Fali kasuwa, and recently in Tsokuwa Haruna over five thousand stands of Palm tree planted in a new Palm tree plantation across NGADA."
