The Status Quo

Currently, only about 1% of Nigerian Cropland is Irrigated.

This means Agriculture in Nigeria is almost exclusively rain-fed. Nigeria has a proven huge water resource potential.

This would greatly benefit both the crop and animal farm industry. We achieve this via a two-step process list below;

  1. Site survey
  2. Irrigational design and management
