Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari’s proposed plan to import grass from Brazil for grazing has been supported by the Senate Committee on Agriculture.
The grass will be distributed to designated regions across Nigeria for grazing.
According to the Daily Post, the planned importation of the grass looks to ease the crisis between herdsmen and their host communities.
The government also hopes the strategy will bring forth solutions to the ongoing problems faced in grazing.
Chairman, Senate Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development, Senator Abdullahi Adamu said: “importing grazing grasses and making them available to cattle rearers would put a stop to movement of cattle from one place to another and also end the feud between herdsmen and farmers.”
The committee also hailed president Buhari’s directive for the release of 10 000 tonnes of grains reported Vanguard.
