Description

This short course will prepare learners to understand vegetable production, cultivate and produce vegetables in commercial quantity as well as establish a lucrative vegetable production business

Vegetables are essential dietary requirements for healthy living. They are sources of vitamins, minerals, fats and to some extent carbohydrate and protein. Nigeria is a large country with very large population with non-farming population concentrated in our big cities all over the country.

Therefore, sustainable intensified vegetable production offers a useful approach to improve food availability given our present situation. Thus, the need for training such as this aimed at sensitizing and re-awakening the consciousness of participants to the need to fully utilize the various gifts of nature that abound in our rural and urban communities for sustainable livelihood.
