An enhanced system of farming known as Hydropolics technology will by this weekend be taught FCT residents through which they can make millions of naira monthly via harvests that are four times of more value than what is produced through the normal agricultural process. This will happen at a one-day intensive training organised by BIC Farming Concepts that has trained over 1000 Nigerians in the last one year.
Participants at the event tagged ‘Mega Hydroponics Training’ will be taught the technology of farming on water, instead of the customary soil farming. This method has proven to be cheaper as the extent of farming that requires one hectre of land can now be carried out on a plot of land or less; meaning that the harvest that needs cultivating 10,000 square metres of land, can by this technology happen with just 500 square metres.
In this seminar billed to take place by 10am this Saturday (November 5) at House 24, E Road, Citec Estate, Mbora, Jabi, Airport road, FCT Abuja, BIC Farms will be letting out its best kept secret in solving the challenge of feeding livestock, and would expose how vegitables like celery, pumpkin (ugu), tomatoes, iceberg lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, spinach, strawberries, melons, aromatic, and medicinal plants, which were hitherto not grown in Nigeria, can now be planted locally through Hydropolics technology.
According to the CEO of BIC Farms, Debo Onafowora, (firstname.lastname@example.org) “There is something I saw in India which they have been into for a long time. I was shocked to discover it is here in Nigeria. It is a type of plant that is going to redefine Nigeria’s livestock industry and environmental protection industry. With this plant and the technology to grow it, we will convert wasteland into productive ones.
“What we are going to grow on that wasteland is a very important livestock feed. And this we are unveiling at the seminar. We’ve done that in Lagos, we are about to do in Abuja and in the Port Harcourt, for the Niger Delta where their water is polluted. Polluted water does not affect Hydroponics.
“With hydroponics, you’ll save at least 80 per cent of water usage. 70 percent of the freshwater bodies of the world is currently used for irrigation, the water scarcity is increasing. With Hydroponics, you’ll save 80 per cent of that 70 percent. Hydroponics only requires 20 per cent of the same amount of water you need for open field.”
Onafowora shall be teaching you how to save at least 70 percent on the cost of feeding your poultry, cattle, rams and goats, rabbits, etc, as Hydroponics guarantees growing highly nutritious folders within 6 to 9 days to be used in feeding such livestock. Aquaponics, which entails using wasted fishwater to grow vegetables, will also be taught at the session that promises to be highly rewarding.
Those that registered for the seminar will also learn how to go about localized greenhouse manufacturing, and will be provided: Hydroponics guide DVD, Hydroponics guide manual, The “DISCOVERY” male and female spurs and The “DISCOVERY” guide manual.
While clarifying that hydroponics is not genetically modified organisms, GMO, Onafowora said, “it’s not about the seed but about medium for growing the seed. It started in the olden days of Babylon. If you remember one of the wonders of the world; the hanging gardens of Babylon. That was Hydroponics. GMO is about the seed but Hydroponics is about growing seeds without soil.”
