Jere – Castor Production

Castor


ID:FM003

Client:Efugo Nigeria Limited

Date:July 2017 (ongoing)

Produce:Castor

Land Size:15 Hectares

Farmers:30

Location:Jere, Kaduna

Summary: Efugo Nigeria Limited requires a sizeable supply of castor seeds for their oil mill in Idu Abuja. While castor grows wildly across Nigeria, there is very little commercial production.

Ahead of 2018 plans for a 500Ha cultivation, we agreed to run a pilot to establish the production parameters of the crop. The idea is to give a very practical feel for what the actual production entails.
