PSDAMP is designed to bridge the gaps and strengthens collaboration between Public and private sector investment to deepen and expand the delivery of Mechanization services to farmers especially the smallholders.
We are in partnership with the the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (FMARD) to deploy 10,000 units of tractors and other equipment over a period of 5 years with a 35% counterpart funding from the Ministry while NAMEL coordinates the project.
NAMEL syndicate the remaining 65% from the private sector. This project helps to reduce 100% burden of equipment
The PSDAMP is value chain oriented and incorporates all key factors and actors in Agricultural Mechanization Ecosystem.
The overall goal of the INALDS Scheme is to create a robust partnership project that takes away the 100% initial financial burden of “Land Clearing” from the Federal, State and Local governments, investors as well as the farmers using flexible deferred payment model while enhancing the needed capacity for small and medium-scale farmers to expand their areas under cultivation and increase their productivity.
INALDS is a private sector-led initiative of the 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 Agricultural Land Development (“Land Clearing”) equipment are deployed for the land clearing chain operations ranging from tree mulching, tree felling, windrowing, de-stumping root picking to the creation of farm roads. The operations are carried out by highly trained equipment Operators and Technical Managers.
INALDS services are delivered timely taking into considerations the seasonality of Nigerian Agriculture and we provide further recommendations on soil fertility management system, land use optimization including irrigation services and access road.
INALDS builds on the on-going implementation of the Federal Government Enabled-Private Sector Driven Agricultural Mechanization Programme (PSDAMP) being coordinated by NAMEL.
INALDS is a complimentary service that ensures more Tractorable lands are developed to promote commercial Agriculture while carrying out de-stumping operations to enhance Smallholders and medium-scale farmers use of Mechanized equipment.
