The HIMMA Project

 

The HIMMA Project was conceived to address the express business of reorganizing and changing the mindset of farmers and would be farmers on how the business of agriculture can be carried on in a sustainable manner. Agriculture is a business and the aim of every business is to make profit.

With the understanding that the Nigerian farmer has lots of factors at odds with his commitment to realise farming as a sustainable business, with little or no access to information regarding modern agricultural techniques and sustainable means of farming, limited access to farmland which translates to limited output on harvest. He has no access to market where his produce can get fair prices.

The farmer has no acces to dunding and lacks the wherewithal to attract funding that would translate to fertile land., with no access to improved seeds and seedlings, good fertilizer and other inputs required to achieve bountiful harvest. Hi life is a life of toil year in year out.

As a result of the above, most people especially the youths abandonn farming and agriculture as a profession, and the rurual centres for an uncertain life in the city centre. The economy of the rurual center is in camatose.

Agroalala in corroboration with researchers drawn from the Abubakar Tafawa Belewa University Bauchi, Ahmadu Bello University Zaria and te Federal University of Agriculture Umudike and the Federal University of Agriculture located at Abeokuta initiated a business plan that would gurantee that agriculture can be and will be practiced in a sustainable manner going forward.

The Katsina state government has entered into a Public Private Partnership (PPP) Wwith Agroalala Plc to achiev the project aim of the practice of agriculture in a sustainable manner using eighteen thousand (18,000) famers upon take off. This agreement gave birth to HIMMA Project.
