WHY YOUTH SHUN FARMING, BY GUANAH (By CHARLES EMENI)

A onetime Commissioner for Lands Survey and Urban Development in Delta State and Managing Director, Raymos Guanah Farms Limited, Barr. Raymos Guanah has expressed concern over the unwillingness of youths in the state and the country to take to farming, attributing it to what he described as the unattractive nature of farming in this part of the world. Barr. Guanah made the observation in a chat with Saturday Pointer at his Asaba residence during the week. 

He expressed regrets that it is unfortunate that in the 21st century, agriculture was still at the crude and subsistence and manual level in most parts of the state and the country, adding that except agriculture is made attractive by making it mechanized and less stressful, the nation’s army of unemployed may not want to embrace it. 

While saying that agriculture has the triple advantages of food productions, revenue generation and employment, he expressed regrets that this sector of the economy has been neglected over the years. He said this was what informed his going into mechanized agriculture. “These three areas of food production, revenue generation and employment appealed to me. The youths in the country do not want to embrace agriculture because it looks for jobs that are not there”, he added. 

At the Raymos Guanah Farms, he said, the management has ensured the full mechanization of the operation there with the exception of pineapple cultivation and harvesting. Recently, he said the farm took delivery of five sets of cassava planters and harvesters, adding that the equipment has the ability to dispense fertilizer as you plant and also with the added advantage of planting melon.
