Cross River Govt Carries Out Digital Mapping Of Soil Across The State


To find out if a certain sort of crop can be grown there, the Cross River government is going to start digitally mapping the state’s soil.

The Deputy Chief Press Secretary (DCPS) to the Governor Comr. Edem Darlington on Thursday made this known during a conversation with a few Calabar-based internet news outlets.

The DCPS claims that “to conduct digital mapping, the government has dispatched agricultural experts to a number of towns around the state’s 18 local government units. After selecting the soil sample, they will transport it to the lab for analysis. After that, they will ascertain the fertility of the soil and the kind of crop that will do well there.”

He said that the effort will eliminate trial and error in the process by making it much easier for investors entering the state to engage in the agricultural sector by providing them with knowledge about the type of soil and the best crop to plant.

“The governor has made the decision to streamline the entire procedure and shorten it for investors. You already know what kind of soil each community has when you arrive, so you can decide what you want to grow. You can literally access the map from anywhere, he continued, and then choose what you want to plant.

Edem Darlington said that the governor wants to modernize Cross River’s social infrastructure, starting with the capital city of Calabar. He continued by saying that the governor has also reduced the level of unease by making state service chiefs more vigilant.

The DCPS, accompanied by Mr. Andrea Ekeng Inyang, the SA to the governor on New Media, and Mr. Nathan Otaba, the SA to the governor on Communications, urged the online media to spread the word about the government’s initiatives. They claimed that the administration of Governor Bassey Otu places a high value on the media and that as such, they ought to work together for the state’s development.
