Jatropha - Key Crop
The Jatropha plant is well known all over Nigeria and does very well in the arid and semi-arid areas. It currently grows in the wild in the 19 Northern states and parts of the southern states, especially around Cross River and parts of the South-East where land is available. But it is mainly a northern shrub because of the arid and semi-arid nature of the climate and the availability of vast land not currently used for crop cultivation or not even suitable at all.
Jatropha has been successfully grown to produce bio diesel. New processing techniques allow now the dry fruit fibres to be used as animal fodder, replacing soya beans and vastly improving the economics of the crop.
NEW ERA Partners are working with Green AgriCo Investment Ltd to create one of the most ethical investments. Against a backdrop of desperate poverty, we plan to established operational practice that forces back poverty and provides sustainable financial improvement to thousands of Nigerians. Our overall social goals and objectives are to improve sustainable livelihoods of rural communities by building on their capacities and reducing vulnerabilities.
