moving on firstly as students i believe we are in schools to LEARN …so the first step to Impacting the agric industry is to actively LEARN…As agric students we should have information a regular person who just had extra cash to invest in agriculture doesn’t know like existing myths about limitations of agriculture in nigeria…i want everyone to answer two questions i want to throw
i mean like the tomatoes that come from the north big and round not the small ones we see around here…But still yes is the answer . Most people don’t know that the reason tomatoes don’t really pop here like there in the north is due to high relative humidity basically there are many pests and diseases attacking it here than in the heat and dry air in the north so it does better . i know of an open field to math farm in LAGOS!!! yup what they did was plant on the ocean side the white beach sand where air moves fast so the water doesn’t settle much, the ground is sandy and sun is hot and very cold in the night , no diseases can thrive there and they use irrigation for their tomatoes and BOOM business…bottom line is we need to actually pay attention in classes to be able to put these theories to practice like these tomato farmers did. LEARN
do you know why? … anyways i’ll leave you to find that one out.
Students can also impact the agric industry by starting their own agric firm… I’m sure when you read that the first thing that would come to mind is funding right?
