Plateau State is set to host no fewer than 1,500 potato and other root crop farmers in a one-day exposition.
The development was disclosed to newsmen in Jos by the Coordinator, Plateau Potatoes Value Chain, Mr. Thomas Muopshin.
According to him, the event, which will hold on Thursday, November 18, will feature an exposition on modern root crop farming while attracting more international investors into the state.
Muopsin said the exposition will help stimulate the exportation of potatoes from the state.
According to him, this will be achieved through the establishment of a Potato Centre of Excellence.
Furthermore, he said the session would enlighten the farmers on the required standard for exportation and the need for them to key into the plan.
Also, he noted that the seminar would help expose potato farmers to windows that would enable them to take advantage of various opportunities.
