Nigeria is not producing enough of what we eat and not exporting enough to earn foreign exchange, with these in mind the government is taking a sharp turn towards diversifying the economy from oil to farming by encouraging more agricultural activities in the country.At commodity.ng we are driven by great passion to reduce extortion of agricultural producers by market forces and middlemen within and outside the country.
Knowing how much to sell and how much to buy agricultural commodities is as essential as producing those commodities themselves, this factor determines whether more people will be enthusiastic to invest in agriculture or not. Commodity.ng is working towards providing veritable platforms for the citizenry to invest in agriculture by ensuring all stakeholders are treated fairly. We believe farmers need to receive the right information at the right time in order to plan their cultivation well, from the clearing of land to the actual harvest and sale of farm products. We also invest in research and other activities to help empower farmers with the technical know-how to help them increase their produce by engaging them with new technological innovations they can adopt through our live & daily updated and reliable news and articles.
