The Managing Director, BENCUT Fertilizer and Chemical Ventures, Engr Benson Terseer, has assured farmers in Benue and other states in Nigeria, of his resolve to increase the production of quality fertilizer products at affordable prices and  according to the different soil conditions in the country.

Terseer stated this, during the award of Mandatory Conformity Assessment Programme (MANCAP) certification of his fertilizer products by the Standards Organization of Nigeria (SON) in Makurdi recently.

“Today has marked a great turn around for our company with the certification of two of our fertilizer products, NPK 20:10:10 and NPK 27:13:13 by the Standards Organization of Nigeria. This has given us the opportunity to serve farmers in the state and other parts of the country better.

We target farmers’ needs and produce fertilizer products that meet the soil conditions in their environment to encourage better yields. For instance, the NPK 20:10:10 is made specifically for the soil condition of Benue farmers to help boost crop production, and we sell these fertilizers at affordable prices to accommodate farmers with different economy situations,” he said.

He praised the efforts of the federal and Benue State governments, for providing the company a conducive environment to operate, and encouraged farmers to take advantage of the company’s products to place Benue on top of the list of food producing states in Nigeria.

Earlier, in his speech, the Director General, Standards Organization of Nigeria, Mallam Farouk Salim, represented by the State Coordinator, Engr Olowu Daudu said the certification of BENCUT products was done in line with international standards required. He said the company had gone through the relevant standards and met the required conformance of the product standard.

He assured the company of a cordial relationship with SON which included periodical surveillance to monitor conformance with the standard and unannounced inspection visits to the factory, to ascertain BENCUT’s continuous adherence to the requirements of the relevant standards of SON.
