In a visionary move towards addressing the critical issue of food insecurity in Nigeria, Eko Yams‘ mother company Assetrise Limited recently inked a pivotal partnership with the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA), headquartered in Ibadan, Oyo State. This collaboration marks a significant step in the company’s commitment to not only redefine Real Estate but also contribute meaningfully to the nation’s agricultural landscape.

Since its inception in 1967, IITA has consistently taken the lead in collaborating with both international and national partners to improve livelihoods, foster food and nutrition security, amplify employment opportunities, and conserve natural resources. Utilizing sophisticated genetic engineering and selective breeding techniques IITA develops a wide range of staple crop varieties for different situations and purposes. Notably, these improved crops can have more farmer-preferred traits, and greater adaptability to changing climatic, biological, or physical conditions. This partnership seamlessly supports Assetrise‘s commitment to food security by providing access to the right seedlings, that enhance the efficiency and profitability of agricultural produce.

Assetrise Limited has rolled out the Land Rental Income (LRI) Scheme, another testament to her commitment to combatting food insecurity in the Nation. The LRI model advocates for the instrumentalization and commercialization of agriculture as a viable solution to the challenge of food insecurity. As global food insecurity continues escalating, ensuring our basic needs’ stability becomes a pressing priority. The growing number of individuals facing hunger necessitates a re-evaluation of our approach to food security. Traditional methods like food importation and distribution have proven insufficient in light of economic uncertainties. Therefore, it is crucial to explore innovative solutions, including boosting indigenous food production.

The Land Rental Income initiative allows individuals to contribute to addressing food scarcity and inflation by leasing their land for food cultivation while awaiting future development. Participants also have the chance to earn rental income on the lands during this waiting period. This project is located at Palm Fortune City Phase 2 in Ado-Odo/Ota, a Smart Agro-Economy and residential city in Ogun State, this project offers a unique blend of Real Estate and Agriculture.
