Covid-19 agricultural response: ITRA’s contribution

(Togo First) - Under the Covid-19 agricultural response, the head office of the Togolese institute for agricultural research (ITRA) will give high-yielding varieties of cassava to farmers, breeders, and fish farmers. The move aims at helping these actors boost their respective outputs which were clobbered by the virus. 

To be precise, beneficiaries will get white-fleshed and yellow-fleshed varieties, as well as broodstock and seedlings produced by the institution’s research. 

Togo’s covid-19 agricultural response aims at adding up nearly XOF230 billion to the country’s agricultural revenue. Besides cassava, authorities hope to increase the outputs of cotton, corn, and rice, to 225,000 t, 2 million t, and a little more than 330,000 t, respectively.
