UGU FARMERS ASSOCIATION aims to help people benefit from Ugu farming. The UGU FARMERS ASSOCIATION, which was established on the 11th of May 2020, is registered with CAC,SMEDAN and NEPC.

- The Constitution.
- The membership/cooperative card.

The association was formed due to the following:
- Most people take ugu for granted, everyone needs to be enlightened about the usefulness of ugu.
- Most ugu farmers are not aware of the current and best practices of growing ugu.
- Most people don’t know that the most profitable and healthiest vegetable is ugu.
- Youth restiveness, joblessness and poverty can be greatly reduced through ugu cultivation.

Ugu farming happens to be one of the easiest agricultural ventures, and is always in high demand all year round. It is by far, the most consumed vegetable of any kind in Nigeria. An acre size Ugu farm is capable of turning in above N3,000,000 and it will take you less than N1,800,000 to cultivate one acre farm of Ugu.
Apart from cooking, Ugu has been known to increase the volume of the red blood cells when consumed fresh, without being cooked. Its blood enhancing nutrients give it the ability to expand the volume of your blood at a very short time after consumption. This and other important benefits makes Ugu to be in high demand.
Anyone who can cultivate Ugu, is absolutely going to make good money selling it and can be cultivated in every part of Nigeria due to its adaptability to the Nigerian soil and climate condition.
Cultivating Ugu (vegetables) could be very easy ranging from land clearing, tilling, bed making, fertilizer application and watering when necessary.
If you could raise a small garden then you could do ugu farming too. It’s not much of a stress especially with farming consultants like us .

Back to agriculture
No matter how far one has gone in the wrong direction, the most appropriate thing to do is to turn. There was a time when one of our former leaders declared and I quote, “Our problem (in Nigeria) is not how to make money but how to spend it. ” This happened when we were relying on agriculture/farming. Ever since we flung out farming through the window and started running after oil (petroleum), our fortune nose-dived.
Until our standard of living rises to a level where we will all embrace farming as ‘the remedy’, we shall pitiably remain hostages to our very own fabricated tragedies.
