We all know that farming is hard work. It’s not easy to produce food for a living especially when the odds of pests,diseases,climate change, praedial larceny, wastage, glut etc. are against you.
Farmers simply can’t go big on their own. They need help…partners…more customers.
Here are 7 reasons why I think agro-processors help to make farming worth 100 times more.
1. They prevent wastage by processing raw farm products into high value products.
2. They create a new type of customers for them.
3. Agro-processors add some innovation and creativity to farming.
4. They buy in bulk.
5. They help to increase the selling price of raw agricultural products.
6. They help to boost production.
7. They lessen the work of farmers by stimulating the creation of machinery which facilitates the processing of products.
