As a leading mineral exploration company in Nigeria, and within the scope of its collaboration with the Nigerian Geological Survey agency (NGSA), AGV Mining has undertaken Phosphate exploration works in Sokoto. Indeed, the country holds large deposits of underexplored phosphate reserves, and has spent years relying on importing fertilizers for its crops. This why, some years ago, Nigeria’s federal government launched a Presidential Initiative on Fertilizer (PFI) to support the domestic blending of NPK fertilizer and to reduce its importation. A major mineral nutrient for plants, Phosphate allows their optimal growth and reproduction, increasing grain production and improving the quality of the crops. AGVM is proud to have been selected for this project and cherishes the role it is playing in helping reduce the challenges being faced by local farmers.
