Abstract

The landscape of agriculture is expanding to include agribusiness in the supply chain operations and management. Globalization is opening enormous opportunities for food and processed commodities while, at the same time bringing challenges of global competition. Linking agriculture with green economy and empowering farmers, women and youth with livelihood and entrepreneurship skills are necessary. Improving the competencies of scientists, teachers and extension workers, and delivering training in high-tech agriculture, secondary agriculture, and entrepreneurship will go a long way toward developing and adopting modern technologies that will bring more income to farmers.
