Vegetables farm under development

MIGS VEGETABLES FARM is a start-up company. The company will carry out high turnover commercial vegetables production in Net-houses and Greenhouses using both the open field and hydroponic farming technique and marketing of high quality produce to a mainly middle class target market.

The farm is located not far from Abuja, the Nigerian capital, and built around efficient technology and Good Agricultural Practices. It will also help in the development, training and empowerment of skilled and semi-skilled staff in the area of modern, sustainable and Good Agricultural Practices.

While Agriculture comprises about 40% of Nigeria’s GDP, and employs over 70% of its productive labor force, only 40% of its over 84 million hectares of arable land is cultivated. Consequently agriculture needs to be economically viable by balancing between efficient and productive agricultural enterprise and environmental protection and sustainability.
