Why Africans should be excited about Urban Agri World 2019

Urban Agri World is the only vertical farming, greenhouse and controlled environment Agriculture focused summit in Africa bringing together government and private sector stakeholders.

It brings together growers, investors, farm produce buyers, academics, policy makers, technology & system integrators and CEA business owners.

Over the years, there has been growing interest in vertical farming business & urban agriculture, as a solution to the weather and pests problems, food security, climate change and environmental preservation challenges.

Commercialization of vertical farming is catching on in Asia, Europe, USA, Russia & now Africa.

Many private companies are interested in growing crops in hydroponic, aquaponics & aeroponics systems in warehouses, greenhouses, containers & high skyscrapers.

The MD/CEO of Nigeria Incentive-Based Risk-Sharing System for Agricultural Lending (NIRSAL) Aliyu A Abdulhameed said “Vertical Farming will inevitably be Africa’s future pathway to food security and environmental sustainability.

NIRSAL’s participation in Urban Agri World will open new frontiers to better address the multidimensional needs of agricultural value chains in competitive urban agribusiness and food industry.“
