Smart Farms Seminar in Lagoss

On Saturday, 29th July, 2017 we attended the Smart Farms Seminar – Family Edition organised by PS Nutrac in Ikoyi, Lagos.

The event discussed how farming can be done at home using everyday materials and innovative techniques to grow green healthy foods and vegetables.

Through smart farming agricultural productivity can be increased while agricultural wastage can be drastically reduced. The need for every hand to contribute to food sufficiency in Nigeria cannot be overemphasized.

Techniques of growing food discussed at the seminar include:

  • Soil-based farming;

  • Soil-less culture;

  • Hydroponics;

  • Aquaculture;

  • Aquaponics;

  • Design of hydroponics and aquaponics units;

  • Fish in aquaponics;

  • Hydroponics and aquaponics plants;

  • Plant propagation; and

  • Plant growth requirement.

It was a day of learning that attracted over 50 farmers and farming enthusiasts from Lagos and surrounding states. Our take-away from the event was how to use the waste water from our fish ponds, which is rich in ammonia (a source of nitrogen), to fertilize our vegetable garden. Hopefully this will help improve our water management and increase our vegetable yield.

The smart farm seminar was organised by PS Nutrac, a company committed to improved production of healthy foods using innovative techniques.
