The overall goal is to improve the livelihoods of rural youth through agriculture and agriculture-based enterprises..
From its business incubation centre, IITA has demonstrated that improvements in design and supply of agro-machinery is crucial in the development of profitable agribusinesses. Indeed, provision of right machinery is an important step in making the transition from agriculture to agribusiness for the targeted youth and in raising productivity and reducing losses. Furthermore, the machinery must be suited to local conditions and contexts. In this case, youth with engineering background will be trained in the modification of motorised farm equipment as part of farm mechanization to improve crop production efficiency.
