United States Recognizes Nigeria’s Angel Adelaja; A Farmer Who Grows Crops Without Soil

The United States has honoured another Nigerian, Angel Adelaja who is seriously doing something really great in the agricultural sector. She is the owner of Fresh Direct Nigeria, a company that is very concerned with the production of food produce.

The wonderful thing about what she does is that she does a kind of farming that is known as hydroponics, a crop growing system that does not need soil. Another thing is that though the farming does not use the kind of water the traditional type uses, it produces 15 times more than normal farming.

According to a post made on Facebook by U.S Embassy Nigeria,

“Angel Adelaja launched Fresh Direct Nigeria in 2014 to provide fresh fruit, vegetables, and meats to urban communities without access to farm land. She uses a method of growing plants without soil, also known as hydroponics, coupled with old shipping containers to create stackable container farms. These farms use less water than traditional farming and produce a 15-times higher yield. Her business is environmentally-friendly, cost effective, and sustainable thanks to technology. Adelaja is a Nigerian American who returned to Nigeria to cater to the expanding class of nutrition-conscious urbanites“.

Since the inception of the company in 2014, Adelaja has been helping communities without land access. She returned to Nigeria from America with the aim of contributing to the nutrition-consciousness of Nigerians.
