According to him, agriculture has entered a period where data capture and interpretation are essential for successful farming.
Addressing BusinessDay Agribusiness & Food Security Summit in Lagos, Obaseki said his administration was using technology to organise and enhance data from across the agricultural landscape to enable farmers produce more food for a growing population, using natural resources in a sustainable way.
He stressed that while high-input and resource intensive farming systems have increased food production they have come at a high cost to the environment.
Ogbeh added that the step was being taken to ensure availability of credit at a reduced interest rate for youths interested in farming.
At the interest of between 25 and 35 percent, the minister said agriculture was not profitable, adding that failure rate occasioned by skyrocketing interest rates charged by the banks were not in the interest of the economy.
To keep pace with population growth, he emphasised that food production needs to increase mainly through youth involvement.
One way to achieve this, he added, was through measures to help farmers and youth’s access credit and benefit from technological advances.
Head of Netherlands Representation in Nigeria, Michel Deelen said Nigeria has the capacity to increase food production and agriculture to boost growth rates, create more jobs, significantly reduce poverty, and grow enough food to feed its citizens if efforts are made to improve road infrastructure.
Discussions during the forum focused on the role of small holder farmers in ensuring food security, the challenge of climate change, and the opportunities agriculture can offer youths.
Stakeholders at the summit wanted the government to address constraints, including improving land tenure, expanding credit availability, investing in input markets for nutrients and machinery, developing drainage and irrigation systems, and enhancing rural transport and electricity connectivity.
They said farmers and agribusinesses could create a trillion-dollar food market if they can expand their access to more capital, electricity, better technology and irrigated land to grow high-value nutritious foods.
