Dubai student fights Nigerian food insecurity with graduation project

Inspired by the UAE’s technological progress, a Dubai University student has transformed his undergraduate engineering project into a thriving sustainable agriculture venture in Nigeria. As an MBA student at the Canadian University Dubai (CUD), Farouk Dalhatu is introducing local farmers in Nigeria to advanced agricultural technologies to combat food scarcity.

Al Zira’a Tech, established in 2021, grew from Farouk’s final-year project during his Bachelor’s in Computer and Network Engineering Technology at CUD. His aim is to empower farmers to shift away from traditional agriculture by merging integrated and precision farming techniques, promoting sustainable practices, and providing technology solutions.

The company offers three main services: farming advisory, hardware technology (including surveillance and sensors), and sustainable organic fertilizer. They also conduct seminars, talks, and have developed an app for farm management, launching in November, allowing farmers to remotely manage tasks and access best practices advice.
