Flagging off the presentations at Ogbadibo, Okpokwu and Guma Local Government areas, Benue IFAD-VCDP State Project Coordinator, Mr. Emmanuel Igbaukum said each of the benefiting farmers will receive two litres of herbicides from the organisation at no cost.

He said aside the contribution of his organisation to boost cassava cultivation in the state, each of the 2,500 benefiting farmers, through their cluster groups, would also receive same quantity of counterpart support from the state government.
