I'm practicing fertigation farming in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Borneo, Malaysia, growing bird's eye chili (cili padi), chili (cili kulai), rockmelon, tomato and other potential cash crops and vegetables.
Besides, I also bought a printed media business in the same city.
Reason: To collect and organise contacts of agriculture downstream industries (restaurants, Hotel, retails, exports, food process)
In Sabah, small plantation owner (less than 3 acres) still growing vegetable and fruit using traditional method. Market data of agriculture is not updated. Lots of idle land which is not been utilized. Young generation are leaving the country to seek job opportunities at Singapore or West Malaysia.
Vision : Everyone can own a profitable farming business in South East Asia, starting from Sabah. Borneo.
Mission : To develop a sustainable world-class success-proven franchise farming business which encouraging youth entrepreneurship.
