Agripreneurship refers to entrepreneurship in agriculture. Entrepreneurship is a concept that encompasses transforming an idea or vision into a “new business or new venture creation, or the expansion of an existing business, by an individual, a team of individuals, or an established business”
Agricultural markets across the globe have seen a massive change over the past thirty years. The international trade of agricultural products is shifting. The local market is no longer as strong as it used to be. National markets are also falling behind. The global market system appears to be of trading seems to be growing larger and larger.
The result is simple. Local smaller farms are starting to compete against some of the world’s largest agricultural corporations. That is increasing the gap between local and global markets resulting in the local economy of many areas falling behind.
Commercialization is taking over
We can notice an increasing pressure on local farmers that are trying to commercialize their work without great success. Farmers need more production systems to increase their production line while at the same time urbanization and rapid growth population are not working on their benefit. Modernization is complicating matters, even more, seeing as farming families in rural areas need to increase their production but are unable to, due to lack of larger production equipment.
The solution to the problem is entrepreneurship. Farmers need to become entrepreneurs and adopt an agripreneurship model that will help them create their local clusters and start increasing their production as a synergy and not as individual local farmers.
