Nigeria: Pastor promotes hydroponic vegetable productionAn Associate Pastor with Winnersí Chapel in Ogun State, Debo Onafowora, is promoting vegetables production through soilless agriculture, The Nation reports.
He called on those living in Lagos and Abuja not to allow the scarcity of land as well as its exorbitant cost deter them from big-time farming as they can take advantage of the hydroponics technology to grow economically-viable plants in their balcony or a small garden in their compound.
He was recently at Landmark University, Omu-Aran, Kwara State to make a presentation.
The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Adeniyi Olayanju reiterated the commitment of the university to revolutionising agriculture and the attainment of food security for the African Continent. He stated that hydroponics is a major way the university can actualise their agrarian mandate.
