The agricultural industry in Nigeria is plagued with many problems, ranging from terrible infrastructure to illiteracy. Thankfully, technology startups have already started doing the work of improving the plights of local farmers. With the demand for food higher than ever, farmers don’t have time to struggle with plant diseases and crop failures. And to address these challenges, my innovation for sustaining crop protection is the agricultural use of drones (commercial farms, research institutes, investors, and large private farm).

Lauren Nadeau said it best, “Farmers now have another responsibility after harvesting the day’s crops. They report about it on Twitter.” The day has come where you can’t just harvest some corn, but you have to tell people what you did and how you did it. Social media overcomes geographical boundaries and creates communities who share common interests. But, like every other technical update this century, social media has changed the way things are done and perceived. Agriculture, being one of the industries we rely on heavily, is being affected by social media.
