It was an honor shedding light at TechFest on how one can become a farmer without necessarily owning a farm but simply by sponsoring a farmer to grow crops and help reduce hunger. Techfest platform brings technology to all aspects in life including Farming.
Across Africa, we have seen organizations investing in technology to drive innovation in agriculture. From climate-smart techniques, to the use of biotechnology we explore how technology can be a game changer for the future of agriculture in Africa. It was an honor joining Kola Masha, Managing Director at Babban Gona on CNBC Africa for this discussion.
The lack of investors in small scale farming is one of the major reason why Farmcrowdy was established and I am glad to tell you ever since Farmcrowdy was introduced into the industry, there have been a drastic improvement on investment towards small scale farming.
It was a privilege having PulseTv Nigeria come over because, it shows our tractions are building awareness for us out there and the purpose of explaining how Farmcrowdy bridges the gap between farmers and sponsors is very necessary.
For the first time this year, we will be making over 5,000 units of new maize farms available for sponsorship next Wednesday, the 4th of April. We will be empowering over 2,000 farmers this planting season by cultivating up to 7,000 acres of maize and rice farms in Kwara and Kaduna states. We are excited for the opportunity to empower even more farmers, together!
Farmcrowdy is Nigeria’s first Digital Agriculture Platform focused on connecting farm sponsors with real farmers in order to increase food production while promoting youth participation in Agriculture.
