Understanding youth and their attitudes towards agriculture : a baseline study
Research on youth interest in agriculture was carried out to determine the level of perception and attitudes of students to agriculture. The procedure was conducted among a sample size of 155 respondents comprising Junior and Senior Secondary School Students in Nigeria. The presentation provides analysis and implications of findings. For the most part, young people see agriculture as hard work but still enjoy agriculture and take part in field (practical) activities. They also have knowledge of careers in agriculture and also agribusiness. The “Start Them Early Program (STEP)” agricultural programme would be a good fit.
