- The United State has honoured Angel Adelaja, a farmer who depends on less soil to produce fresh fruits and vegetables

- Adelaja's kind of farming is a tool that helps people without access to land get food for survival

- The farming system also uses less water but produces more than the traditional way of growing crops

The United States has honoured another Nigerian, who is doing something really great in the agricultural sector. She is the owner of Fresh Direct Nigeria, a company that is very concerned with the production of food produce.

The wonderful thing about what she does is that she does a kind of farming that is known as hydroponics, a crop growing system that does not need soil.

Another thing is that though the farming does not use the kind of water the traditional type uses, it produces 15 times more than normal farming.
