Out-Growers Scheme

Elephant out-growers scheme is developed to boost existing farmers production, we work with existing farmers to grow a better variety, increase their yield and have a guarantee buyer / off-taker.

For Elephant group, these has helped to guarantee quality input-supply to our various mills and processing centers while enriching the farmers.

Our out-grower scheme covers:

Rice Out-Growers Scheme

Our target is to generate an annual supply of 40,000 metric tons of paddy with 40,000 farmers enlisted for the out-growers scheme on a 10,000 Ha of land. States targeted include Bayelsa, Ebonyi, Rivers, Delta, Edo, AkwaIbom, and Cross River States of Nigeria.

In Niger State we have a sizeable arable land for paddy rice cultivation. This makes it a very good investment for Elephant as maximum efficiency can be achieved in the state. We are set to cultivate 5,000 Ha in the Elephant/Niger state partnership. This scheme has enjoyed tremedous success
