    • BY DR (MRS) MABEL YARHERE NIOMR COORDINATOR (VILLAGE ADOPTION PROGRAMME TEL: 08023392901 EMAIL: MTYARHERE@YAHOO.COM THE WEST AFRICAN AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTIVITY PROGRAMME ON ADOPTED COMMUNITIES AND COLLEGES -UPDATE ON BADORE MODEL COLLEGE, LAGOS
    • PRESENTATION OUTLINE 1.1 INTRODUCTION 1.2 OBJECTIVES 1.3 METHODOLOGY/IMPLEMENTATION 1.4 RESULTS/DISCUSSION 1.5 CONCLUSION/RECOMMENDATIONS 1.6 BUDGET HIGHLIGHT
    • INTRODUCTION Promotion of NIOMR’s innovations, with particular reference to fish culture using plastic tanks, have been carried out over the years through the Research-Extension-Farmer-Input-System (REFILS) as well as using the mass media and publications like Extension Guides, Newsletters, Journals, Conferences proceedings, Magazines, Bulletins, Flyers and so on. However, the expected impacts of technologies up-takes by target audiences have been minimal.
    • Intro cont. This phenomenon geared the Agricultural Research Council of Nigeria (ARCN) towards promotion of technologies utilization through the use of the ‘Adopted Communities and Colleges Concept’ where technologies are demonstrated and mini-kits installed for practicals.
    • Intro cont. The results were encouraging and the project got the approval of the World Bank as it is currently implemented through the West African Agricultural Productivity Programme (WAAPP) for the widespread of technology adoption
    • OBJECTIVES The project is aimed at: encouraging large scale adoption of improved technologies by farmers up to 50% at the end of one year Economic empowerment of resource poor farmers  encouraging up to 50% of secondary school students offering Agricultural Sciences in the Senior Secondary School Examination  improving students’ performances at the SSCE examination and ultimately offer Agriculture related courses at the University and become self-employed  reducing unemployment in the country and provide food security and improved standard of living of young graduates and community youths.
    • IMPLEMENTATION STRATEGY  Sensitization of the College staff and students on felt and latent needs in their agricultural businesses and schools’ curriculum  Participatory appraisal of technologies to be introduced to the college  Group participation in the implementation of the programme  provision of adequate sites for implementation of the programme by the College  Capacity building of community youths, Agric teachers and Students on basic fish farming technologies  Excursion to NIOMR and established demonstration Centre at Magbon-Alade Community in Lagos state to experience the functionality of the project.  WAAPP/NIOMR provision of input like fish house, plastic tanks, fingerlings and floating fish feeds
    • RESULTS/ACHIEVEMENTS  Sensitization of the Principal, Agricultural Science Teachers and students as well as participatory appraisal of the technologies  Excursion to NIOMR’s facility and Magbon- Alade demonstration Centre
    • CAPACITY BUILDING OF THE TEACHERS AND STUDENTS OF BADORE COLLEGE. Theory on breeding in progress Identification of fry feeds
    • Group participation in implementation and building of the fish house Excavation of plot for fish house Agric teachers and students watch as the building commences
    • BULDING CONTINUES Uncompleted block work  Partially installed plastic tanks
    • MISSING GAP It is necessary to state here that the fingerlings for stocking at the College plastic tanks could not be stocked there due to security and poaching issues. The fish house and store compartment have not been completed. The fingerlings are therefore stocked at the Institute’s demonstration ponds near the college. Stocked fish at NIOMR demonstration centre at Badore .
    • OTHER FARMS INTEGRATIONS Some students have been allotted some plots for Yam farming as well as maize
    • THE PROJECT IS IN SLOW PROGRESS AS ACCESSING FUNDS AND PROCEDURES ARE VERY STRINGENT. CHALLENGES
    • CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATIONS The beneficiaries of the project are eager for continuity and completion of the fish house and subsequent stocking of the tanks. It is recommended that the other aspects of integrated fish farming as practiced in Songhai and elsewhere in Nigeria be effected immediately.
    • FUTURE OUTLOOK OF THE INTEGRATED FISH FARM PROJECT AT BADORE MODEL COLLEGE
    • BUDGET HIGHLIGHT S/ N APPROVED ACTIVITIES FUNDS UTILIZATION AMOUNT REMARKS 1 Establishment of demonstration plots Platform construction, building of shed, installation of plastic tanks and plumbing works 1,880.000.00 2 Training Training of 4 Agricultural Science teachers on breeding processes.
