Institutions forces to explore teaching with technology this figure is likely to grow even faster than expected after the lockdown. When this happens many schools that are not technically inclined will shut down completely besides. Many professionals and hobbyists now leverage the technology to enlighten people in their field. But then a whole lot of professionals do not yet employ teaching with technology as side revenue as we move further into the 21st century.

What this research entails is that demand will continue to grow in the agricultural sector in many years to come. But then even though agriculture is one of the oldest human professions it is arguably one of the most underrates jobs in the world. Most people associate agriculture to poverty even with the resources as to the promising future of agriculture. Many people are still short-sighted and only a few people are taking advantage of this enormous opportunity and invest in agriculture. When the word agriculture is mentioned people assume that it is farming and to them also farming is an occupation only for the poor farming and agriculture, in general, have long moved past the poverty narrative in Africa. Agriculture provides about 23 GDP, yet the potential of the agricultural sector can be said to still be untapped. So, the next time you see an opportunity to invest in agriculture take it seriously, not being aware is no longer a reason.
