In Nigeria, there is hope that with the presence of an Agro Marketplace like the AgroDomain Platform, proactive measures can be taken by farmers to prevent an imminent food crisis in the country…..
Today, the reality stares the world in the face with the attendant fears and deaths. COVID-19, otherwise known as Coronavirus is spreading across all the nooks and crannies of the global community, with the speed of a harmattan fire.
As the consequences are becoming as challenging as they are dreadful, the looming food crisis being the most worrisome, the AgroDomain Agro Marketplace Platform, a one-stop-shop for everything in the Agriculture value chain, is positioned to provide hope and confidence for Nigerian, nay African farmers.
As an active integrated Pan African Start-up Agro Marketplace Platform, designed to cater for the end-to-end requirements of the agricultural value chain, AgroDomain has been positioned to help farmers cushion the effects of this rampaging virus currently sweeping across Nigerian cities.
The COVID-19 effects may be quite challenging, there is a respite for farmers in Nigeria as AgroDomain has promised to maintain the lead in empowering farmers with access to market and capital, link Agric produce buyers with reliable suppliers and providing on-demand logistic support for value-chain players.
AgroDomain is using the latest cutting-edge technologies to support every aspect of the agricultural value chain by creating products that enhance productivity and connectivity among every role player in the agricultural value chain.
The aim of the AgroDomain’s Agro Marketplace platform is to empower Agricultural industry players, whether big or small, with direct access to what they need to succeed, wherever and whenever they need them.
