Brenthurst Foundation Enugu Tour: Agric. Team Visit To San Carlos Farm in Enugu

Today, the Brenthurst Agric. team led by the Enugu State Commissioner of Agriculture and some of its directors visited the San Carlos farm. We were shown around by the farm manager, Mr. Obiora Ugwo.

The San Carlos farm seats on a 3400 hectare land size; but as at the time of this visit, only 250 hectares is actively being used.

It has a production capacity of 40MT/hectare and its workforce of about 150 people are sourced from the surrounding communities.

The workforce recruited are constantly being trained and part of the farm is under irrigation. They have a market reach that spans the Nigerian federation.
