To work on the improved Variety of the almond fruit so as to improve the growth rate compared to the one available in the wild, which takes more longer years to mature and start producing fruits, and also help to increase the nut size.
All this are been done to help meet the food, nutritional and environmental demand for the growing population.
plans are been made to fabricate an almond shelling machine in Nigeria, currently we are working with NCAM (National Center For Agricultural Mechanization) to help us build a prototype sheller for the fruits, while we are using the manual process.
