Explain your idea in details:
To Add to what basically the idea is all about is basically food production which consists of various kinds of crops. According to statistics the world today as we know it depends on the adequate and efficient food production to feed her growing population and in approximately next 30 to 50 years from now the world's population could be standing at about 10,15 and 20 billion in population and the only way to keep this unending growing population Alive and going is if we put more effort in food production and also to explore any possible means of production via newer, faster, safer, efficient technological advanced methods of food production with lesser harmful side effects which could be either pollution and so on. And so futher more the idea is all about mechanised farming, irrigation, creating job opportunities, improving trade and commerce, and lots of opportunities in making the world very much better place than what it was and what it used to be because there is always a chance to keep improving.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Well as a small scale farmer I know what I have experienced and I do know that no aspiring younger wanna be farmer would like to go into the farming field due to how it is being conducted on the smaller scale because trust me it has been very difficult with lots of dedicated time,effort with not much yield in the end and so the aim or the targeted goal is to try to develop the entire sector by encouraging and soliciting for a better system of Agricultural farming from the cultivation of land to weed control to pest control to the application of fertilizer and then finally the yield it produces and so generally speaking it's all about and effective way or system of food production with lesser stress in the process , much more yield, reliable means or products to trade availability of jobs to enhance the labour population and also varieties be it in fruits, vegetables or either cash crops e.g rice, maize, yam, potatoes, beans and lots more. In conclusion, the idea is that with advanced mechanised farming, the production scale would be massive big enough to feed large population and even trade.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
Well Agricultural farming as a business always depends on how you go about your plan from the business angle you're looking at a well planned scheme which includes the acquisition of land, cultivation ,planting , growing and then the harvest and then the trade which includes calculated expense of production followed by profit acquired. Now all of these is made possible with a source of finance or capital . The capital to start a business is usually one the most difficult stage because not everyone has the capital to start a business and there are potential suitors that one could get capital from for example Agricultural bank , that is for Agricultural business one could apply for a loan NGOs who are willing to patner and sponsor such innovative ideas depending on the output it promise to provide.
As for me I am 24 years of Age am a student and a young entrepreneur who is into farming. My main motivation is the fact that I love Agriculture, food production and the opportunities it has to offer and again because I strongly believe that our future depends on Agriculture to survive without it we would not make it. Well I come from a place that people see farmers as the poor ones and insignificant, the uneducated, and that also one of the reasons why I chose this path to try to correct such mentality and try to make a change. Due to this I do not have any recognitions yet but I do intend to remain committed and diligent in my work and trying to make people really see how we so much need Agriculture.
