Youth in Agriculture

Agriculture presents a unique opportunity for African youth, not only because it is the largest contributor to GDP in most African countries, but also because it continues to experience significant growth. However, youth remain uninterested in agriculture. This trend is further highlighted by the ageing farming population in Africa. Available data from Nigeria reveals that the current average age of a farmer is between 55 and 60 years.
