Hello,

My name is Sylvester Saduwa, I'm 36 and I call myself an Accidental Farmer.. lol

I am Nigerian, living in Nigeria, a graduate of Computer Engineer (not so much of an engineer right now... lol) and I have always loved the idea of procreation, animals or crops, I like to watch things grow, it's exhausting but the process is always beautiful.

Sometime in 2020 in the whole craze of the Corona Virus I left my house in Lagos to a rural area in Delta because I just lost my job to resizing, as a tech representative for an IT firm in Lagos.

The issue of banditry and farmers/herders crisis has been putting lots of people away from their farms for fear of their lives but out here where I am, we are not having much trouble like other places, food prices getting higher and sometimes scarce.

The thing is, my family have more than 20 acres of fertile land where I can use to solve a small part of these food shortage in my immediate community. I already did a test phase of tomato crop after attending a training on tomato, cucumber and other vegetable cultivation, and it did good. 

But the issue was that the rains I was hoping on for water, suddenly didn't fall for almost 3 weeks and I didn't have anyone to help water the crops so about half of 400 plants died off and I was able to grow the rest to maturity and harvested.

Having a drip kit will complete solve the issue of dependence on rain and will help boost production all year round.

I plan to spend money on 2-3 acre irrigation system, 2,000 liters overhead tank with steel base for water supply and a 5 HP water pumping machine. I already have seedlings for 3 crops and land preparation will be done by with a tractor.

With this I hope to make some vegetables cheaper in my community and make life easier for myself and my family.

Thank you as you help me achieve this dream.
