Nigerian farmers have been advised not to be deceived by the early rainfall in the Savannah region to rush into agricultural activities.
The national coordinator of Zero Hunger Farmers Association, Tunde Arosanyin, gave the advice on Wednesday in an interview with PREMIUM TIMES.
Mr Arosayin, who is also the national technical adviser to the All Farmers Association Nigeria (AFAN) was speaking against the backdrop of early rainfalls in parts of Nigeria.
PREMIUM TIMES reported that residents of Port Harcourt experienced the first rain in the year with a heavy downpour and cloudy weather Wednesday morning.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) also reported that the residents had expected the rain last week when they experienced partly cloudy weather.
