Nigerian political officials searching for methods to improve food production are seeking solutions from Fort Valley State University.
As a part of an eight-day U.S. tour, political officials representing the Cross River State located in Nigeria will visit campus June 20, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The tour will begin at the C.W. Pettigrew Farm and Community Life Center. During their visit, officials are scheduled to listen to a presentation about the role and impact of the Sustainable Agricultural Research and Education (SARE) program. They will also tour FVSU’s College of Agriculture facilities.
James Hill, FVSU’s 1890 land-grant university liaison for the SARE program, said the purpose of the visit is to expose the officials to the SARE program, a U.S. Department of Agriculture funded program that offers grants and provides education.
