[Tagline: If it can help your farm business, you’ll find it in THE FARM CEO™ Newspaper ]
In this third issue for this year (2016), all five reports/articles showcased are from third party websites on the theme of “Innovation in African Agriculture”.
I believe too little attention has been paid so far to the role that innovation, driven by indigenous individuals and groups can play in taking African farming to the next level and beyond.
The articles showcased here offer insights into efforts being made in certain African markets to do a better job of bringing useful innovations into the spotlight and adapting them for profitable application in relevant enterprises.
We need to keep in mind the fact that ideas, simple as they are, and often costing little or nothing, can lead to massive positive changes in the fortunes of our business enterprises.
Considering that farm businesses generally tend to struggle with relatively low profit margins, it goes without saying that adopting innovative thinking in doing our farming will be the crucial key to making out businesses more successful in terms of profits made as well as time, effort and money expended.
The story of the simple innovative idea used by the Kenyan teenager featured on this page provides an excellent example of what ideas can do if properly harnessed. It’s time for farm business owners in 21st century Africa to begin investing some of their quality time into THINKING up new and better ways to do what they do.
Hopefully, for those of you who are subscribers to The Farm CEO™, this issue’s 5 reports will give you a few pointers/inspiration.
Richard Turere’s Lion Light system is made out of LED bulbs and a car battery to prevent lions from eating livestock.
By Daniela Walker – 1 march 2013
The Nairobi National Park lays four miles south of Kenya’s capital city, with just one fence keeping wild animals away from humans. This makes for a lot of human-animal conflict, especially between lions and cattle farmers.
