Releaf, an agricultural technology startup, has collaborated with the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture to improve growth and sustainability in oil palm production in Nigeria and across Africa.

According to the company, this partnership will enable it and IITA to explore ways to increase oil palm yields, deploy the best intercropping mechanisms, and work with fabrication and mechanisation experts to foster further innovation and development in Nigeria’s smallholder-driven oil palm sector.

In a statement, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder, Releaf, Ikenna Nzewi, was quoted as saying,  “IITA has a long and rich history of working with international and national partners to impact agricultural value chains and we are really excited to be partnering with them.
