It’s been almost 3 months since I started working in Agriculture. It’s been an awesome experience but not without its challenges. I’ve had to make a lot of changes to my life style and my perception of certain things. It is definitely not as rosy as what I’m used to but I’m truly thankful for this opportunity.
As part of what I do I have to visit farms. The pictures below is from a visit to a rice farm in Ise. It was a long trip and it was the first time I ever got on a canoe. Pretty amazing stuff.
That’s me with my kit on and ready to go. In the background are some of the building being constructed by the project.
That’s the team about to cross the river
We all took turns in paddling….
Finally on the farm….

Being in the Agriculture sector has its challenges but the opportunities significantly outweighs any challenge.
In conclusion although the next-gen African farmer will be technologically savvy they must be willing to use traditional methods when the needs arises. The next-gen African farmer must be adaptable and flexible.
I would like to know your thoughts about working in the sector.
Thank you for taking time out to read this post and sharing your comment.
