Millions of people are looking at investing in agriculture.
Millions of people are looking at scamming people of their hard earned money all in the name of agriculture.
Smart dudes need to take extreme precaution before committing fund to a suppose agribusiness personell

Most agribusiness people do not know jack before jumping into agric. They quoted the blogs whose main source if information is another blog
There are some agribusunes investors too that have the sole intention of scamming people of their hard earned money from the start.
Nigeria love packagings.
They love effissy..
Nice office in the city….
Great oratory …
Monthly training on projector….
Agric meetings in hotel…
Nice farm set up with fan fare….
All the above do not make a financially successful or sustainable farmer.
*Ask questions that relates to what you want to invest in.
* What are the production method?

But the question I have always asked is…..
“How do you consult on what you are not practising?”
Borrow some brain
