Why Choose us
To be Nigeria’s leading player in the Agriculture business and thereby contributing immensely in revamping the ailing Agricultural sector which would snowball into a robust platform for jobs and wealth creation and in turn, improve and consolidate the Nigerian economy.
Mission: To deploy state-of-the-art technologies in food production, processing, preservation and also to create a platform for the effective distribution of these products to both the local and international markets.
In Triune Built FarmTech, what are we trying to achieve? We look forward to making Nigeria a major exporter of Agricultural produces to the rest of the world thereby, restoring Nigeria to her former glory. Agriculture in Nigeria was a major branch of the economy in Nigeria, providing employment for 70% of the population. The sector was transforming by commercialization at the small, medium and large-scale enterprise levels. Major crops included beans, sesame, cashew nuts, cassava, cocoa beans, groundnuts, gum arabic, kolanut, maize (corn), melon, millet, palm kernels, palm oil, plantains, rice, rubber, sorghum, soybeans and yams.
In the early 90’s, 82 million hectares out of Nigeria's total land area of about 91 million hectares were found to be arable, although only 42 percent of the cultivable area was farmed. Much of this land was farmed under the bush fallow system, whereby the land was left idle for a long period of time to allow for natural regeneration of soil fertility. 18 million hectares were classified as permanent pasture, but had the potential to supporting crops. Most of the 20 million hectares covered by forests and woodlands were believed to have agricultural potential. Agricultural holdings are small and scattered, and farming is carried out with simple farm tools. Large-scale agriculture is not common. Agriculture contributed 32% of GDP in 2001.
The country's agricultural products fall into two main groups: food crops produced for home consumption and exports. Prior to the Nigerian civil war, the country was self-sufficient in food, but increased steeply after 1973. Bread made from American wheat replaced domestic crops as the cheapest staple food. The most important food crops were yam and manioc (cassava) in the south and sorghum and millet in the north.
Cocoa is the leading non-oil foreign exchange earner but the dominance of small holders and lack of farm labour due to urbanization hold back production. In 1999, Nigeria produced 145,000 tons of cocoa beans, but has the potential for over 300,000 per year. Rubber is the second largest non-oil foreign exchange earner.
Considering the level that Israel has attained in agriculture, it is obvious that we have our work cut out for us. Nigeria in the last two and a half decades has really declined in its productivity level thereby, losing its place of glory in the Agricultural sector of the world.
Triune Built Farm Tech will provide an on-line portal that will service the producers and the consumers. Just like Amazon and other e-Commerce platforms, the idea is to create a ready market for goods and services. The benefits of these services to the producers (farmers) is that it provides a ready market for their products. Also, to the consumer/customer, the benefits of these services are that he/she enjoys the ability to a make choices from high quality products that will be available all year round.
