INTEGRATED NATIONWIDE AGRICULTURAL LAND DEVELOPMENT SCHEME (INALDS)
Integrated Nationwide Agricultural Land Development Scheme (INALDS) is a private sector-led initiative of Nigerian Agricultural Mechanization & Equipment Leasing Company (NAMEL)- and Mantrac Nigeria Limited (MNL) structured to leverage on public and private partnerships to open Agricultural Land using global best practices and flexible differed payment model.
Under INALDS, high quality tailored Agricultural Land Development (“Land Clearing”) equipment are deployed for the land clearing operations ranging from Tree Felling, Windrowing, Under - brushing, De-Stumping, Root picking, Farm Design & Parcellation, Rome Ploughing and Farm Roads constructions. These operations are carried out by highly trained equipment operators and Technical Managers to ensure compliance to standard operating procedures and good practices for agricultural land and soil and environmental conservation.
The overall goal of the INALDS scheme is to create a robust partnership that takes away the 100% initial financial burden of “Land Clearing” from the Federal, State and Local Governments, investors as well as farmers using flexible deferred payment models while enhancing the needed capacity of the small and medium-scale farmers to expand the areas under cultivation and increase their productivity.
The project was officially launched in 2019 and has undertaken the following project successfully since the flag-off:
- Ogun State Land Clearing Project (200 Hectares in Ojoowo, Ijebu Igbo LGA and 100 Hectares in Atoba Alamure Community, Remo North LGA, Ogun State).
- Aku – Irapana Land Development Project (200 Hectares in Aku Community, Adavi LGA, Kogi State).
