A new digital method has been introduced to participate in Agriculture using online technology. Introduced by Farmcrowdy.com, Nigeria’s first digital agriculture platform, anyone and everyone can now partner with Farmcrowdy to own a minimum farm space.
According to the company in a statement, it is now possible for Nigerians across the world to commit an agreed sum to starting and completing a farming cycle.
“In doing so, the farm partner is able to sponsor a farmer in one farming cycle thereby empowering the farmer, expanding their farm operations, participating in the drive to end food scarcity and making use of 50 million hectares of arable farmland in Nigeria that is currently under-utilized according to the World Bank.
“The Farmcrowdy.com platform allows Farms Partners to sponsor any farm of their choice including Maize Farms, Poultry (Broiler) Farms, Cassava Farms and Tomato Farms. The Farm Partners then gets bi-weekly updates about their farm progress including pictures and videos from the farmers. Also, Farm Partners can visit their farms if they wish to at any point in time to learn about the farmer they’ve partnered with and the farm products they are working on,” the statement noted.
