Agriculture must be technologically driven for higher yield, income, says Faborode
The much-desired transformation in agriculture must be technologically driven in order to achieve the desired high production, curb wastages, thereby improving yield and attaining high income.
This was the submission of a former Vice-Chancellor of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Professor Michael Faborode, while delivering the 6th Convocation Lecture of Landmark University, Omu-Aran, Kwara State.
Titled: “Sustainable Agricultural Mechanisation, Livestock Transformation, and Post-Harvest Revolution – The Landmark Frontiers,” Prof Faborode said the youths hold the key towards attaining the desired transformation in the sector.
The professor of Agricultural and Environmental Engineering described today’s youth as technologically savvy, saying such is an essential criterion to transform the future of agriculture positively.
Said he: “The time is right for Africa and particularly Nigeria to fully leverage the mobile platform to harness its digital innovations to achieve its agriculture potentials through efficient use of resources.”
