We are IITA Youth Agripreneurs, a group of young graduates involved in agribusiness, with the aim of being a unit that would serve as a model to other young people planning to venture into agribusiness and becoming the trainer of trainers.
The activities of the group cut across the value-chains of different crops including cassava, maize, plantain/banana, and soybean.
For cassava, we are into stem multiplication and root production. For maize and soybean, their focus is on seed multiplication (both certified and foundation seeds), whereas for the plantain/banana, they are into sucker multiplication and fruit production.

We have managed to bridge the gender inequality gap in the team, with our present number standing at 11 men and 10 women.
