Farmcrowdy has always celebrated and recognized National Productivity Day in honour of Nigerians that are constantly serving, innovating, and contributing to the development of our great nation, Nigeria.
This year’s National Productivity Award Ceremony which held on Tuesday, May 22nd, 2018 at NAF Conference Centre in Abuja was a day we excitedly looked forward to because not only are we celebrating with the awardees, we had also received a letter from the National Productivity Committee that in recognition of our contribution to the Agric sector, Farmcrowdy would be receiving the National Productivity Order of Merit (NPOM) award!
