As numerous campaigns across the country seek to exploit the vast potentials inherent in the agricultural sector towards economic recovery, coupled with increased campaign for the patronization of locally made products, the Nigerian agriculture sector no doubt is set to become Nigeria’s economic savior.

However, very little progress will be achieved without stemming the nation’s mania on foreign importation of farm produce. Hence, revitalizing agricultural productivity is of the essence.

Little wonder that the “Grow What We Eat and Eat What We Grow” campaign – an initiative incorporated into the Home-Grown School Feeding Program (HGSFP) of the Federal Government, has been viewed as a viable avenue to fast track growth and development in the country.

Beyond being a key electoral promise of the current administration, the HGSFP would be beneficial for the agricultural sector as it will guarantee an off-take market for farmers’ produce. Thus, the HGSFP is bound to have a concomitant effect on agricultural productivity.

To this end, it would be safe to say that the present-day developmental imperatives transcend the HGSFP, covering the entire agricultural sector and serving as a veritable substratum on which to hoist the larger sectoral revamp effort towards economic resurgence. However, to birth these realities, the private sector must be brought into the equation.

As a key step towards facilitating the engagement of the private sector in the HGSFP, stakeholders in the agric sector both locally and the international community will converge in Lagos for the first ever Feed Nigeria Summit 2017, to discuss ways of tackling the diverse challenges in the Nigerian agricultural space.

AgroNigeria – Nigeria’s Agricultural Mouthpiece in conjunction with its sponsoring partners, will have the honor to play host to such a historic event that promises to be one of the biggest agricultural event to ever take place in Nigeria.

The summit seeks to address key national agricultural productivity issues like finance, market access, research, infrastructure, mechanization, ICT, youth and gender as well as appropriate policies and legislation in the sector.

The overarching objective of the summit scheduled to hold on 6th – 7th of April, 2017 will be the conduit for homegrown answers to the question of economic diversification of Nigeria through increased agricultural productivity. This will be achieved through extensive panel-based engagements between policy makers, investors and operators in the agricultural production, processing and industrial sub-sectors.

You can’t afford to miss out on this.
