[Tagline: If it can help your farm business, you’ll find it in THE FARM CEO™ Newspaper ]
This final issue of The Farm CEO™ for 2015 features 2 news reports about the development and future of Agriculture in Africa – with regard to the crucial role to be played by African youths.
I personally believe that citizens of Africa nations will have to take the initiative to get involved in Agriculture, rather than wait for any concerted efforts from the government. This is not to say that the government cannot deliver. I just believe the drive to engage in Agriculture must come primarily from the people.
We must demonstrate more interest in exploring the income earning opportunities available in direct farm business operation and other aspects of the industry such as processing and marketing.
A good example of an industry doing well, and being driven by the initiative of individual citizens at mostly the micro to small scale level if the PC, Mobile and Internet technology industry.
Very little of the growth we’ve seen has come from direct government action. Most of it has happened because people saw opportunities and chose to go after them. It is my considered opinion that those of us already engaged in agriculture at various levels are best positioned to SHOW the youths and others, that similar opportunities exist in this industry. If we do it right, they WILL come on board, and then maybe the government’s efforts can do them some good from that point on.
Happy holidays and I wish you a prosperous New Year!
