There is no doubt that the agricultural sector has a sizeable economic and social impact globally. A recent Mckinsey report noted that 60% of Sub-Saharan Africa population consists of smallholder farmers and around a quarter of its GDP is generated by agriculture. Yet smallholder farmers sit at the bottom of the pile for the inflow of investment in the agricultural sector.
The agricultural industry in Africa remains a vast field of opportunities for savvy investors, particularly as more and more African entrepreneurs are working hard on discovering new solutions to age-old farming challenges. One such trailblazer is Nigerian agritech startup, EveryFarmer. Its founder, Luna Bawa, spoke with AfriTech XYZ's Chief Do-er, Bayo Adelaja, to give us insight into how this platform is supporting smallholder farmers in Nigeria.
