This a great challenges threating the sustaining Agricultural practices in Africa because most youth doesnt see any value in what our forefather invested so much, however its only what is working that we can sustain. Many youth have lost hope in anything that as to do with agriculture and agricultural practices are fading away gradually because it's becoming non attractive.

 

We needed to build agribusiness as key to a developing nation which will unlock neccessary support to make youth open their heart to the huge benefit in agribusiness and once this is achieve we can now start working on support system to keep the youth encouraged.

Bank of Industry are embarking on quit numbers of initiatives to support agriculture but policy for accessibility should be made easy for youth without huge collaterial to access facilities to support the Agricultural business which will enable a sustainable system
