This season of global shutdown has so many lessons enbedded in it. Among which one of the most profound insight for Agripreneurs and business owners generally is to explore more avenues of making money from their business.

Before now, traditional approach to increasing revenue in most agri-businesses (especially) in Nigeria were usually tied to business activities that can only be carried out physically.
