Market Opportunity/ Problem
Inadequate mechanization continues to pose challenges to the local agriculture sector. Modern farming requires farmers and landowners to address profitability, fertility, conservation, among others. In addition, inadequate post-harvest storage facilities in the region expose crops to contamination by micro-organisms, chemicals, excessive moisture, fluctuating temperatures, and mechanical damage. Brazafric offers complete engineering solutions to the agribusiness sector through comprehensive customer need assessment, designs, project layouts, supply, install, train, and other customized solutions.
