Creating a Sustainable Future In Agriculture
Agriculture is as famous as the world’s oldest profession. Its role in our feeding, health, commerce, fashion etc. cannot be overemphasized. Due to agriculture’s prominence, world-renowned researchers have forecast that it will feed the future. However, it is important to note that the future of agriculture lies in its sustainability.
Sustainable agriculture aims to meet our present agricultural needs without compromising its availability for future generations.
Agricultural Sustainability is not boosting food production to feed people, neither is it farming that focuses on the environment. It is a multifaceted system that focuses on the Argo process and agribusiness in general, rather than just a specific agricultural product.
Research has it that sustainable agriculture can be actualized via three factors; a healthy environment, economic profitability, and innovation. The process of agricultural sustainability cuts across every member of the agri-ecosystem; farmers, food processors, distributors, retailers, consumers, and waste managers alike.
To achieve a sustainable agricultural future, collaboration and cooperation at multiple levels and cross-cultural knowledge exchange is required.
Meet the Farmers Conference (MTFC) 2019, the largest agro conference brings together agro stakeholders from Africa and the GCC. It aims to create a healthy environment, economic profitability, and innovations, to drive business partnerships that will make a formidable impact in agriculture.
The conference will feature panel session that includes Bola Oyedele, Azeez Oluwole, Joshua Ajisope, Ademola Akinyemi and Kenneth Okonkwo will be addressing ‘Ways to Create a Sustainable Future in Agriculture’.
