In 2011, Dizengoff Nigeria launched a focused long term initiative with the aim of empowering Nigeria's small and medium scale farmers with Dizengoff's 3 pillars to successful, sustainable agribusiness: Knowledge, Know-how and high quality inputs & technologies. This philosophy has positioned Dizengoff Nigeria as one of the leading entities in Nigeria driving a small and medium scale farmers 'agribusiness revolution'. Dizengoff's approach is anchored on the award winning Farmers' Kit, created with the aim of allowing small and medium scale farmers affordable access to modern agricultural technologies, methods and inputs of the highest standard.
Designed by the Balton team of experts and anochored on globally recognized and tested technologies, the Dizengoff Farmers' Kit (DFK) is a tailor-made Kit designed to meet the needs of the specific farmer or group of farmers by adapting the components of the Kit to suit the climate, terrain, and agricultural experience of the farmer.
Following years of development and hands on experience with Nigerian farmers adopting these technologies, The DFK incorporates innovative agricultural technologies including the Family Drip System (FDS), from Netafim, an easy to use gravity-based drip irrigation system, a Farmer’s Greenhouse and top quality agro-inputs such as Seeds, Fertilizers and Agro-Chemicals.
The DFK comes complete with installation, training and an agro-support package that would allow Dizengoff Nigeria to teach the “Dizengoff Farmer” how to grow and then stay with the farmer throughout the season to ensure the best results. The DFKs are custom-made by Dizengoff Nigeria for individuals and specific groups of farmers and include all the necessary ingredients required for one season's successful harvest of a selected crop.
Dizengoff has taken the 'kit' approach further, developing a wide range of kits suited to the smallest of garden plots or larger tracks of land.
