Agriculture, Development, Stories 11/05/2024 by Gwar AondoUshahemba

In Benue State, the call to embrace agriculture has never been more urgent. As an agrarian state, we have the richest if not in Africa then Nigeria, soil and favourable climate, however, agriculture holds the promise of prosperity for us. With the government unable to provide jobs for everyone, venturing into farming is not just an option, but a necessity.

One compelling reason to embrace agriculture is the soaring cost of food in the market. By cultivating different crops and livestock, we can not only feed our families but also contribute to stabilizing food prices in the market. This presents a unique opportunity for us to become self-sufficient and reduce our dependency on imported food products.

Moreover, engaging in agriculture can diversify our income sources and provide a steady stream of revenue for us and our families. With the potential to earn income from selling agricultural produce, there is a real opportunity to improve livelihoods and stimulate economic growth within our dear state.

Furthermore, farming is not just about food production; it is also about preserving the environment and ensuring sustainability for future generations. By adopting sustainable farming practices, such as organic farming and agroforestry, we as farmers can protect the land, conserve water resources, and mitigate the effects of climate change.

Additionally, embracing agriculture can create for us, opportunities for innovation and entrepreneurship. With advancements in technology and modern farming techniques, there is tremendous potential to revolutionize the agricultural sector in our dear Benue State. From precision farming to value-added processing, there are countless avenues for growth and innovation in agriculture.

As the farming season approaches, now is the time for every citizen of Benue State to heed the call to action. Let us come together to break the Guinness record of FARM-A-THON and usher in a new era of prosperity and abundance for our beloved state. By embracing agriculture, we can build a brighter future for generations to come.
