The Federal Government has commended farmers across the country for their contribution toward exiting the country from recession.

Chief Audu Ogbeh, the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, while briefing newsmen in Abuja on Friday, said that both small holders and big time farmers contributed immensely to the exit.

Ogbeh, however, appealed to farmers, middlemen and traders to avoid indiscriminate increase in the price of food items.

He said that Federal Government would not impose price control on food prices, noting that the only option was to improve food production.
