Published on April 23, 2014 um 14:49
Summary of your idea
The micronutrient fertilizer is a blend of secondary and trace elements which are essential for plant growth and productivity. This, when adequately mixed with conventional fertilizer or farm yard manure provides a balanced Composition of essential nutrients to plants for higher yield. The product will also encourage the activities of beneficial soil micro organism to plants eg. Atmospheric Nitrogen modulating bacteria. It will help plants to develop resistance against fungal and bacteria attack thereby encouraging longer storability and reducing cost of buying fungicides and other pesticides for preservation. Farmers will receive instructions on how best to use the product and get its full benefits. This product will significantly improve farmers crop yield and profits.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Nigeria is estimated to have a population of 170 million people and expected to rise to above 200 million in 20 years. Nigerian government spends about 365 billionare naira annually on the importation of rice alone. Africa is one of the most impoverished continent of the world, which is why food security must be addressed. The product I intend to bring into the market seeks to:- (1) Boost food production through farmers yield. (2) Food security (3) Increase farmers income (4) Encourage local food production (5) Processing and packaging industries can be developed and be established, which will help to preserve farm produce (6) Setting up a factory back here in Nigeria will help in reducing unemployment rate amongst youths and women by employing them either as casual or permanent staffs.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
I intend to secure a grant that will enable me to purchase a mixing machine, chemicals, packaging materials, weighing equipment and rent or buy a portion of land to set up the factory that will turn this dream into a reality. I wish to work with local farmers through the federal ministry and state ministries of agriculture, farmers association, and the ministry of mineral and water resources of Nigeria and other interested countries that seek to address food security within their economy. I'm open to sponsors and interested persons, groups and companies.
I am from Benue state of Nigeria, I have a national diploma in science laboratory technology obtained from Kaduna Polytechnic, Kaduna, Nigeria in 2012. I'm very analytically minded. Always striving for perfection. I speak my local dialet(idoma), hausa and english. There are so many unemployed youths and graduate in Nigeria. It is my belief that with innovative programs in agriculture such as the Agricultural Transformation Agenda (ATA) and Growth Enhancement Scheme program (GES) more youths can be encouraged to see more opportunities in agriculture other than in the oil sector.
