Nigeria's First Digital Agriculture Platform Opens

Nigeria’s first digital agriculture platform, Farmcrowdy.com, was officially launched on Tuesday, November 15, 2016, in Lagos, Nigeria. Nigerians can now participate in agriculture using online technology.

“Farmcrowdy is a revolutionary platform, one that has the ability to turn Nigeria’s economic fortune for good leveraging of technology to impact on the Agriculture space,” said Onyeka Akumah, Co-Founder, and CEO, Farmcrowdy.

At the 2016 African Green Revolution Forum (AGRF), which took place in September 2016 in Kenya, African leaders came together to advance the policies and secure the investments that will ensure a better life for millions of Africa’s farmers and families—and realise the vision of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari has, on several occasions, iterated that he was going to keep to his campaign promise of expanding the country’s agricultural sector while stating that petroleum will no longer be sufficient for major revenue generation.
