Young people have the innovative solutions to transform the sector; there are various opportunities for a range of expertise – not just farmers.

Young people need to broaden their minds in not thinking of being a farm worker of a farm owner. Farming colleges are not doing students justice, but have the potential to produce the best young farmers in the world.

The organisations should encourage the renovation of agriculture as a sector to support the growth of industry and services. It makes life easier for people because it is a way of supplying the basic human needs. In the same way, many of the plants that grow in various parts of the world, are being used for medications.
