آج کل پاکستان میں کرکٹ کے حوالے سے یورپین ملک نیدرلینڈ کے بہت چرچے ہیں، اور نیدرلینڈ سے اپ سیٹ شکست کے بعد ہی ساؤتھ افریقہ ورلڈ کپ سے باہر اور پاکستان فائنل میں پہنچا تھا

نیدرلینڈ بے شک کرکٹ میں ایک کمزور ملک ہو لیکن جب بات آتی ہے دنیا کو فوڈ ایکسپورٹ کی تو 🔻 Image
نیدرلینڈ کا نام آپ کو ٹاپ پر ملے گا تو کیا نیدرلینڈ کوئی بہت بڑا زرعی رقبہ رکھنے والا ملک ہے؟ جی نہیں.!!
نیدرلینڈ کا رقبہ ہمارے صوبہ پنجاب سے بھی کم ہے۔ لیکن انہوں نے پانی کے استعمال میں 90 % کمی، عمودی کھیتی، گرین ہاؤسز، بلیڈنگ ایج #agritech R&D میں سرمایہ کاری کر کے ایسا کیا 🔻 Image
صرف یہی نہیں نیدرلینڈ تین ارب ڈالرز سے زائد کے صرف دنیا میں پھول بیچ رہا ہے۔
سردیاں شروع ہوتے ہی پاکستان میں انڈوں کا قحط پڑ جاتا ہے اور انڈوں کی قیمتیں آسمان سے باتیں کرتی ہیں
یہی نیدرلینڈ دنیا کو پانچ سو ملین ڈالر کے انڈے سپلائی کر رہا ہے، جو کہ اوپر چارٹ میں دکھایا گیا ہے 🔻 ImageImage

To cope with the current situation of the coconut tree climbers, Kochi-native Charles Vijay Varghese has come up with an innovation of SAPER — the world’s first coconut sap tapping robot.
To collect toddy from a single coconut tree, a labourer has to climb up the tree at least 270 times. But SAPER brings down this number to two; once for installation and once to dismantle.
The agri-tech startup, Nava Design & Innovation Pvt Ltd, was founded in 2016 by Varghese and is working towards bringing AI and robotics to the agricultural sector.

We can say opportunities in Agribusiness or Agribusiness opportunities. Though when I first saw the topic and analyzed it, I felt the collaborations is not really necessary because there is collaborations in business
already either by government, cooperative body or individual.

Agribusiness is simply agricultural entrepreneurship, farming and any commercial farm-related activity from primary production (crop and livestock production), processing, marketing,
logistics (distribution of raw and processed food).

The term agribusiness was first introduced by Davis and Goldberg in 1957.

Fundamentals of Agribusiness Ventures.

i) Agriprenuership

For any agribusiness enterprise to be established & run successfully,those starting it up & running it must have certain skills,behaviours & attitude.

•Business intelligence
•Product focus
Lack of these attributes leads to business failure especially during the early stages of crafting it.

ii) Have a Comprehensive Agribusiness Plan/Model

Agriprenuers fail not because they are doomed to fail but because they are undertaking so many activities some of which may not be adding value to their business.

He recently took a tour of Mile 12 International Market after selling ours from the farms to connect with the pulse of the Lagos tomato market, find gaps to plug and all things in between to capture new opportunities that create increased value for our farmers. ImageImageImageImage

Many still hold up the thought that farming is traditional and picture it as an activity for the old folks in the villages and their children🙄 Image
Some are quick to shut down the idea of "becoming a farmer", because they believe "carrying hoe and Cutlass" is not befitting of a certain social status they've acquired😳
The only reason anyone will still think this way, is either of these two reasons;
1) they've not heard of Thrive Agric
2) they're sleeping on us 🤦
