The Federal Government says beginning from November this year, it will commence the dry season cultivation of wheat on over 70,000 hectares of land.

An expected yield of 875,000 metric tonnes would be derived from the dry season wheat farming for storage in the country’s food reserves.

The Minister of Agriculture and Food Security, Abubakar Kyari, made the disclosure on Friday at a briefing in Abuja, saying that the focus is on the way forward for agriculture in Nigeria.

He said the wheat production is part of the National Agricultural Growth Scheme and Agro Pocket projects funded by the African Development Bank.

According to him, “Under this scheme, the target is to produce wheat on over 70, 000 hectares across the wheat production zone of the country, with an expected yield of 875,000 metric tonnes for our food reserves.”

He assured that there would be blending of appropriate fertilisers to support this year’s dry season farming while making provisions for next year’s farming season well in advance, adding that there will be the provision of train-the-trainer for extension agents involved in dry season farming in collaboration with wheat producing states and other partners such as flour mills.

Published

on

Are you tired of your phone battery draining faster than ever? It’s not just about how you use your phone, but also about underlying factors affecting your battery life.

Here are the top 5 hidden factors behind your fast-draining phone battery:

1. Overcharging: Overcharging your phone can significantly reduce its battery lifespan, causing it to drain faster. “Avoid overcharging, as it can damage the battery’s internal cells”.

2. High Screen Brightness: High screen brightness is a major battery drainer, especially when used for extended periods. Dimming your screen or using auto-brightness can help conserve battery life.

3. Resource-Intensive Apps: Resource-intensive apps like social media and games consume battery power rapidly. Closing unused apps or using low-power modes can help mitigate this issue.

4. Poor Battery Calibration: Poor battery calibration can lead to inaccurate battery level readings and faster draining. Calibrating your battery regularly can help resolve this problem.

5. Outdated Software: Outdated software can cause battery drain due to inefficient power management. Keeping your phone’s software up-to-date can help optimize battery performance.

To maintain your phone battery’s performance and extend its lifespan, follow these simple tips:

– Charge your phone correctly: Avoid overcharging and keep your battery level between 20% and 80% if possible.

– Adjust your screen settings: Lower your screen brightness, use auto-brightness, or turn off adaptive brightness.

– Manage your apps: Close unused apps, use low-power modes, and limit background data usage.

– Update your software: Regularly update your phone’s operating system and apps to ensure efficient power management.

By identifying and addressing these hidden factors, you can optimize your phone’s battery performance, extend its lifespan, and enjoy uninterrupted usage.
