The Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (FMARD) had in an update explained that the disbursement of the AFJP Fertilizer Subsidy Grant to the enumerated Farmers would be based on Farm Sizes of the benefiting Farmers.

The Ministry noted that while N3,000 represents 1 bag of Fertilizers for Farmers holding smaller farm sizes, Farmers with larger sizes of enumerated farms would receive multiple bags of Fertilizers which will be equated as multiple N3,000 per bag of Fertilizer.
