Young people in Agriculture have expressed the need for concerted Agribusiness training, institutional support as well as agribusiness incubation.
The youth who spoke during the incubation Tv show; a youth program designed to build communities of incubators and incubatees at all levels are sure that these will attract the youth into agriculture.
Speaking during the program Saturday at the University of Ghana -Legon; the CEO of Media incubator for Agribusiness Incubation ( MIAI) Mr Paul Atsu explains that the youth will not only be productively engaged in agriculture but also excel in any chosen area along the agricultural value chain if these suggestions are practiced.
The training program was organized by Media incubator for Agribusiness Incubation ( MIAI) in collaboration with PeaceAids International and is aimed at bringing all key stakeholders from interested governments across the continent, International Development Partners, agribusiness companies, women and youth groups together in order to build a well grounded agribusiness incubation society.
Hamida Shawwah and Kafui Agbe who participated in the program explained that youth engagement in the agricultural sector is the only solution for agriculture in Africa especially considering that many farmers in Africa are above 60 years of age.
