The Managing Director of Honda Manufacturing Nigeria Limited (HMNL), Hiroshima Ichikawa, revealed to Journalists that his company launched an agricultural equipment that has the capacity to produce more than three times, the output of manual operation. This development will boost production rate, eliminate stress, and produce more profits for farmers; which in turn contributes greatly to the agricultural sector.
Large scale farming will thrive and more people will be encouraged to explore opportunities in the agricultural sector. Hiroshima said that grass cutter and sprayer, will be launched again alongside more attachments that support farming.
Small scale farming will also thrive since the equipments exist for personal farmers who will be encouraged to major in agriculture, and further grow to become large scale farmers. More employment opportunities will be created as a result: because there will be need for labour, service and distribution channels to engage in the farming business that will spring forth.
The Sales Manager for Honda Power Products, Abayomi Anuoluwapo, also by way of contribution, also spoke about this new equipment. He highlighted that the sole aim of his company creating this equipment, is to promote agricultural policies of the Federal Government, and boost productivity for local farmers to thrive in the country.
According to him, small scale farmers form a larger percentage of the nation’s contributors, and they deserve to be supported to produce a better outcome.
