You’ve invested your money in different kinds of businesses but all of them failed. You are continuously in thoughts of income that could replace your current job, so that you can stay and be with your family all the time, because you’re tired of working away without them.

And you are dreaming of that moment wherein you don’t have pack your bags and kiss your family goodbye see you in 6 months, or 9 months or 1 year or even 2 years some even went for as long as 5 years.

Toughen yourself my friend!
Because this might be something you have been looking for a long time.
You might have a family or a friend who are already engaged on it,
but since you thought that it is not for you,  you didn’t find it attractive enough to learn and study it.

Waiting for the right moment???

Your retirement???

Now is the right time!

Wait! I think somebody’s knocking at your door..

Knock!! knock!!!

Who’s there??

Agriculture??

Agriculture who?

Or instead

Ask

WHY Agriculture ???

 More people like to eat chicken Joy!

How many of you like Jollibee? What is your favorite budget meal? How many Jollibee franchise are there in the Philippines?

Philippine population is now 102.2 million as per www.investphilippines

How many of this will have to order:

  • Chicken joy (Poultry farming)
  • Extra rice(Rice farming)
  • Spaghetti (wheat Farming) Primarily imported
  • Yumburger (Cattle Farming)

and lots of gravy to be put on the rice?

Guilty? Don’t worry because I’m doing it too

Not only this but other agricultural products that are needed to provide supplies to your different favorite food chains and carinderias. Like

  • Garlic
  • Onions
  • Oils
  • Barbecue sticks

We love to eat don’t we?
That is why franchises of food cart businesses are so popular, you can locate them almost anywhere.

  • Kwek-kwek(quail farming)
  • Siomai (chicken or hog raising)
  • Buko Juice ( Coconut farming)

These are just some of my favorites, I know you also enjoy more varieties and just imagine how our growing population will have to spend eating on their favorite foods as well.

Before You invest You have to

  1. Get the right information
  2. Be familiar how the operation works
  3. Know the potential income of the Agribiz you chose

These factors are important before you can start investing and put your money in agriculture.
But don’t limit yourself because if there is a will there is a way right?!
You could always find someone who can manage the farm for you.

Or you could learn them on your own.

If your time will not allow you to attend seminars and training,  you can register and check this Department of agriculture E-extension learning program.

 Agricultural Apartment!

We have a big land dedicated for agricultural purposes, but many of those are either  converted in industrial or residential like subdivisions scattered all over the country. http://www.nationsencyclopedia.com/economies/Asia-and-the-Pacific/Philippines-AGRICULTURE.html

And since lesser and lesser lands are useful for farming
and for other agricultural purposes, the produced output is also affected.

Buying agricultural lands is a great investment that would sure can last a lifetime
and make sure that every room like an apartment has tenants, crop that you will occupy your land.  

Your Tenants

Crops:

  • Rice
  • Cassava
  • Kamote

Livestock:

Aquaculture:

  • Tilapia
  • Catfish (HITO)
  • Milkfish (Bangus)

Prices will rise if we could not meet the needs to feed our own country, import goods will surely increase,  just to make sure your family will have food in the table.

You can make an income out of investing in agricultural lands and make it as an agricultural apartment, from the products you will produce.

But if you don’t prefer farming

You could rent them out for out to people who lacks capital to buy their own land. Monthly rate or negotiate to an agreement to let them use your land and take a certain percentage of what they make in every harvest time.

There are numerous of farms that are available for lease. You could use the internet to promote yours, or just look for farmers around your area who are looking to increase the land they are farming without buying on their own.

 

Like a successful farmer who invested his money in agriculture out of planting bitter melon, from Sto. Tomas Batangas, ‘ka Sano’ Feliciano Linatoc who believes that you

don’t have to own your own farm in order to become a succesfull farmer. The Manila Bulletin: Plain Agri Talk By ZAC B. SARIAN.

And because of the growing population, not only here but all over the globe, big corporations are increasing and investing their money on agricultural assets to provide for the growing population. They are acquiring huge lands to prepare for what is coming.

From energy needs, making Bio fuels, sources like:

  • Palm Trees
  • Sugarcane

 

To thousands of hectares of corn production.

So if you want a piece of the pie, invest your money in agricultural lands now!

Apart from making money, you could also contribute in making our food security in the future stable.

Sounds cool!

What do you think?!
