Following your progress........I just love the array of veggies you grow. many still have the stereotyped thinking that such can only do well around Plateau State. The South West is in a very strategic position to produce such veggies for the huge Lagos market and nearby states thereby cutting low on dependency of their haulage from the North.

please, how do u plan to irrigate?
That is my key challenge in this dry season farming. I am still reviewing options.
What style of irrigation do u plan to adopt? And what is ur projected cost for setting up the irrigation, assuming u already have a tank and a water source
