What’s the impact of modern rice farming in Nigeria?
Coscharis Farms Limited (Coscharis Farms), a subsidiary of Coscharis Group, is an integrated rice processor in Nigeria. Coscharis Farms is helping to reduce Nigeria’s dependency on rice imports and improve food security. The modern farming model adopted by Coscharis Farms helps to address the current supply shortfall. The Coscharis Farms model is improving agricultural productivity through introducing modern farming methods. It currently achieves 1.3–1.7 times higher rice yields than the regional average. This is an important achievement in the Nigerian context – where low rice yields have been a persistent challenge, making it difficult for local rice farmers to compete with cheap imported rice.
