PhD (Agricultural Business) Research Proposal Preparation

I'm preparing Research Proposal for my PhD application of [url removed, login to view] (sept 2011 intake).

After few months of research, I would like to seek suggestions from fresh minds.


Academic Background:

BA in Marketing of UK and Master's in E-Business and Innovation from Lancaster University Management School.


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.

Marketing Strategies :

a) Organise agriculture downstream industries to ensure stability of market demand

b) Offer a loan-friendly sustainable turn-key business to franchisee

c) To achieve 18-months-break-even record

d) Continuously research and develop a world-class franchise business which can slow down Asian food shortage and lower poverty rates.

Hence, I would like to conduct in-depth research while pursuing PhD at local university. And perhaps, the research and add values to my business and personal visions. With comprehensive facts and analysis, we can provide sound proposal to lobby local government agencies to benefit local Small and medium businesses, especially in agriculture industry.
