That's Nice one.... Especially now that Nigerian Agricultural sector needs the involvement of youths in Agriculture... I do recommend your idea, but you also have to look into key areas like legal, fixed asset availability, linkages with already existing Agricultural Companies basically SME, and support group, like NAIC and other Agricultural Bodies within Nigeria, I think we are going somewhere....... Nice one
