AgroBusiness Times is Nigeria’s premier national magazine on agriculture and its related businesses.
We registered as agrobusinessng.com in 2014 and later became agrobusinessngr.com in 2016, since then, we have impacted positively on the lives of several people within and beyond the shores of Nigeria in agriculture and its related businesses through information dissemination, guidance, and consultations while educating farmers, would-be farmers and agribusiness practitioners because knowledge is power.
WHO WE ARE
Our strong bias for the agriculture sector is borne out of the following:
> To bring free to the knowledge of Nigerians, various ways of making and creating wealth through agriculture.
> To fight poverty, hunger and starvation, by encouraging more Nigerians to engage in the business of food production.
> The need to give a voice to the Nigerian farmer and agribusiness practitioner.
> Showcase and make new discoveries, technologies, innovations, etc. visible.
> To inform and educate readers, farmers and would-be farmers.
> To represent the Nigerian farmer and agribusiness practitioner on government policies that affects their businesses for positive outcomes.
> To offer trainings to farmers and would-be farmers through seminars and workshops.
> To organize events; expos, fairs, etc.
> To give recognitions to practitioners that have contributed to the growth and development of the sector.
> To attract investors (local and international) into the agricultural sector of Nigeria.
Engage in partnerships/collaborations that will advance the sector.
With a pool of competent, seasoned and information driven team; who are authorities at various capacities, such as soil scientist, animal scientist, agronomist, environmentalist, journalist, IT experts, and planners to mention a few, we work collectively to provide cutting edge information, insights, solutions, recent discoveries, and trends to the general public, while communicating the potentials, opportunities and prospects inherent in agriculture.
