As an undergraduate, my practical involvement in agriculture has taught me that agricultural practice goes beyond the four walls of the classroom. Combining both the practical experience and theoretical learning is essential to conceive of practical ways to support agriculture. My initiative, called AgrindusNetwork, started in 2015. It is a paradigm shift from the usual- journal publications, articles, books and so on, for the smallholder farmers and youth who are into agriculture and those who desire to venture into agriculture. The initiative involves a team of innovative young professionals in the field of agriculture working with smallholder farmers in the South West, which will be replicated to other States. Activities include assessment of current and prospective capacities of farmers; discussion of trends in agriculture including the benefits of adopting best practices to boost their production and enhance their livelihood and lots more.
