He said: “Agric has consistently contributed between 20% to 25% to our GDP. In numbers, that’s approximately $100b. While this shows the enormity of opportunity in that space, we have barely scratched the surface as a nation.

“Our technology approach is affordable and easy adaptation for farmers in Nigeria to help achieve sustainable farming.”
