The Green Revolution With Tonto Dike

Agriculture in 1960, before we turned to oil, proved to be the most promising sector in Nigeria. In spite of the oil, agriculture remains the backbone of Nigeria’s economy in defiance of its undermined state. History shows that between 1962 and 1968, Nigeria profited immensely within the range of 60 to 70 percent from the export of crops which added value to the country’s economy. However, this sector faces a lot of challenges especially one of abandonment, research and poor maintenance. This untapped market today is fast experiencing a revolution you would want to be a part of.
“Agriculture is our wisest pursuit because it will in the end contribute the most to real wealth, good morals and 1happiness” – Thomas Jefferson
Have you ever wondered why the likes of Bill Gates own the highest number of farmland in the United States? Why would a man who deals with computers be interested in agriculture you ask? The answer is simple, the world started with farming and if all inventions cease to exist people will still eat. Bill Gates may no longer be the world’s richest man but he can claim a new title ‘’America’s Farmland king’’. He saw a great opportunity and he took it.
“Investments in agriculture are the best weapons against hunger and poverty, and they have made life better for billions of people’’ – Bill and Melinda Gates
The Green Revolution is a platform to help you take advantage of opportunities in the agriculture industry. We are giving latitude to people who are interested in revolutionizing the agriculture industry and at the same time learn the proficiency of this field.
UMeRA desires to provide a programme for Nigerians to make progress and increase the value chain in agriculture. Our mission is to productively engage youths while putting to profitable use the arable land that has been left unproductive. We also seek to set new trends in agriculture, make agriculture the new ‘’cool” alleviate poverty.
The Green Revolution is here to provide learning opportunities for young farmers while they earn. We will equip you with knowledge from the basics of agriculture to the ethics of its business and commerce, if necessary provide you with viable materials for development.
To build all these we are looking for young farmers with vision, tenacity, commitment and diligence to join us in executing this plan. We will be leasing the land for free!
All you have to do is show us you are willing to take the necessary sacrifice, break the norms and be diligent. Join us, let’s make this revolution happen!
