Farmers’ centre targets 1,000 millionaires in five years

The World Farmers Centre on Friday said it had begun a project aimed at raising 1,000 millionaire farmers in five years.

It explained that the project was in line with its core value of encouraging Nigerian youths to embrace agriculture, gain exposure to the different areas of investment in the agricultural sector and broaden their perspectives.

According to the centre, there is a huge tendency for people to concentrate on a few areas of farming that are  considered lucrative at the expense of other value chains that could be equally important and yield better profits.

The statement read in part, “For over 10 years, the farmers centre has had direct contacts with farmers in the country, trying to provide solutions to most of their technical problems. Through its monthly publication, Farming Advice Digest, which is a specialised publication on farming, it has had robust interactions with farmers at all levels, thus, giving it the unique opportunity to understand the gaps in the sector.

“The farmers centre is embarking on the training series as part of its contributions to the development of the agric sector in Nigeria as a whole.”

It added, “Everyone must eat.  This makes farming a viable venture. But farmers need to be rightly guided and trained to use the huge opportunities before them very well.

“The 1,000 young Nigerian millionaire project will involve regular seminars, booth camps, farm visits, mentoring and it is appropriate for private and public organisations.”
