Ayettey Gideon, the president of the International Association of Students in Agriculture and Related Science at the University of Ghana-Legon, has emphasised the necessity of eradicating myths about agriculture and acknowledging the sector’s changing environment.

Gideon emphasised that farming shouldn’t be viewed as a punishment or as a job that requires only manual exertion.

He discussed the growth of cutting-edge industries in agriculture, such as agricultural photography, blogging, and vlogging, which offer novel ways to advance and support the sector without actually partaking in farming activities.

The president recognised that farm photography had the potential to be an effective tool for showcasing the appeal and importance of the agricultural sector. Landscape, crop, animal, and farm operation photography are all effective ways for agricultural photographers to promote agriculture as a rewarding career option.

By employing a method called agricultural photography, we’re attempting to offer the agricultural industry a new appearance rather than punishing someone when we use the term “agric.” This enables people to promote the sector without actually visiting a farm; rather, you can do so through images.

Additionally, you can find blogs and movies about agriculture. In light of this, he came to the following conclusion: “Agriculture is rather doable; we can do it and achieve it because food security is also viable for food to become reasonably priced and available to every individual; it is conceivable, but it requires our collaborative efforts to do it.

The Gideon stressed the need of cooperation when making remarks during a tree-planting ceremony at the University of Ghana.

Boadu Isaiah, vice president of the association, also emphasised the abundance of prospects in the agricultural industry and urged young people to reevaluate their preconceived views of “white-collar” careers in light of agriculture’s enormous potential.

Contrary to popular belief, agriculture presents potential opportunities for monetary expansion and personal fulfilment. Young people can actively contribute to food security by choosing agriculture as a viable career, ensuring that everyone has access to inexpensive, wholesome food.
