Rural Entrepreneurship Development

Though the answer to the question how to develop entrepreneurship lies in the solutions of the problems faced in this regard, yet the following measures are suggested for developing entrepreneurship in the rural areas in the country:

Hydroponics Farming Step by Step Guide

With the world’s population nearing 7.5 billion – and global prosperity and the desire for more resource-intensive foods rising steeply too – it’s clear that farming needs to become more productive.

One way of meeting future food needs could be hydroponics – growing plants without soil, instead using a nutrient-rich solution to deliver water and minerals to their roots. It’s already being used to increase farming outputs and grow plants in habitats that wouldn’t normally sustain them.

Back To The Lands

Our agricultural enterprises development advice program titled BACK TO THE LANDS , a 30 minutes program which will run 4 times every day, seven days a week. The purpose of this programme is to present ideas and information on establishing new agricuture-based enterprises either at farm or processing level, to interested Nigerians all over the world.

The Grassroots Challenge

Over 80% of Nigerians live in the rural areas. Ironically the rural areas remain most deficient of amenities such as good roads, good educations, good water supply, good health care system etc. This instigates persistent rural-urban drift which consequently generates a myriad of socio-economy problems for both rural and urban centers.

Low Technology Irrigation Ideas

Irrigating a farm can double the amount of food it produces. But even with that potential, 80 percent of farmland worldwide is not irrigated, says the UN Food and Agriculture Organization. Part of the problem may be the high cost of irrigation equipment. Also, the prospect of wasteful irrigation techniques raises the specter of environmental damage including water shortages, erosion and soil salinization. Small-scale watering systems can circumvent those issues: Low-cost, low-tech and efficient irrigation is possible. These are ten technologies that work.

A Corruption Conundrum

A lot of people say Corruption is Nigeria's biggest challenge. It is clear to every citizen that the level of corruption in the country is high. It's found in every sector of society. The effect has been the entrenchment of a culture of dishonesty in public institutions and consequently distrust of same by the average citizen.In Nigeria, corruption takes many shapes :embezzlement, bribery, rigging in elections and so on. How would you rate ongoing efforts of government to fight corruption in Nigeria?
