Osasere Erhahon, a young Nigerian from Edo state, is one of the happiest currently as he has made a massive yam harvest from the back of his house.
Erhahon had taken the decision to plant the yams in his compound out of boredom during the lockdown caused by COVID-19; he had no serious concentration on farming.
In a post on Facebook, the excited man explained that the yams grew naturally without fertiliser or any other additive.
According to him:
"I harvested these yams at my backyard last week in Benin. I decided to plant them during the lockdown due to boredom but it turned out to be a bountiful harvest.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian parent, Stella Asho, a farmer in River state, said that she would never allow her children to go into the same profession because it is a very arduous job.
In speaking with Legit TV, the woman said that when she finishes on the farm, she is always very tired, adding that the reason she is doing the work is to make ends meet.
Stella said that she is into the work of cocoa separation from its kernel. When asked how long it takes before the seeds are plucked off their shells, the woman said it depends on the farm size.
Legit.ng had also reported how a 39-year-old Nigerian farmer who owns the second largest rice farm in the country recently told the news organisation how the technology he created is being used to protect farmers.
