TYPES AND EXAMPLES OF FEASIBLE AGRICULTURAL BUSINESSES THAT ARE LUCRATIVE
1. Backyard Nursery
First, do you know what is nursery? A nursery is where seeds are raised into seedlings. They are some seeds, because of their nature, you can't plant them directly on the soil. For example, Cocoa, Palm tree etc. You have to raise the seeds in the nursery before transferring them to the field.
Now, what I am saying is that you can use your backyard to raise healthy seedlings of any tree or plant of your choice and sell them to farmers who need them. I have a friend back then in school who was raising seedlings from Cocoa. I don't know how she got the seeds but she sold the seedlings for N500 per one. She only spent money on the seeds and the black nylons used in nursing the seeds. You don't need a big space at your backyard. All you need is an open space, black nylons and the seeds.

This good business related to agriculture can be done in the house no matter how small the house maybe. Wealthy people like me (wink) who knows the nutritional value always order for it. The snail meat is scare in place like Abuja and other big cities. You must consult an expert before you embark on this low cost profitable agricultural business.

People run from this innovative agriculture business because there feel too big for it. Crop farming involves the growing of crops like beans, maize, cassava, yam, rice etc. This is for people mostly living in the rural areas. You can't do this in the city because of the availability of free agricultural lands.
