About Me

I have a burning desire for agriculture, more especially in increasing the productivity of small scale farmers. I believe that with the right type of capital delivery systems, appropriate land tenure systems, adequate public goods provision and an economically responsive international trade regime; agricultural transformation in rural areas would be a given and food insecurity pushed back to the legends.
