Some farmers in the North-East have expressed concern over difficulties experienced in accessing fertiliser due to its unavailability and price.

The farmers, who spoke in Bauchi, Damaturu, Gombe, Maiduguri and Yola, said the situation would result in low yields at harvest.

Farmers in areas prone to insecurity now rely on close-by, often overstressed lands to farm in resettled communities, thus, making a significant surge in demand for fertilisers to boost soil fertility.
