Joseph advised all farmers, especially those covered by the NAIC insurance to strictly adhere to best agricultural practices, as they have already been educated by the corporation during various farmers sensitisation programs on how to maintain sound house-keeping on their insured projects, thereby closing gaps of risk occurrence.

She reminded farmers that NAIC was specifically set up to indemnify them that insured their farms with the corporation while adding that, given the nationwide spread of NAIC branches which are located in the 36 states of the federation including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), it is wise for every investor across the agricultural value chain to take a NAIC cover as the corporation ploughs farmers back to prosperity.
