About Us


Trainee Farmers Programme

CAP's Trainee farmer scheme is a hands-on program for aspiring commercial farmers. Our aim is to revolutionize agriculture in Nigeria, and to bring more young farmers into the commercial agricultural landscape. Through our comprehensive apprenticeship program, we provide a practical, skills-based education in sustainable farming. Trainees will get a unique and comprehensive education by running all aspects of cassava farming from land clearing to harvesting, under the tutelage of our Farm Head – an international expert in commercial cassava farming Over time, the best graduates of our trainee program will have the opportunity to manage their own areas of farmland on a contract farming basis; creating the opportunity for economic independence.

Outgrower Scheme

Crest Agro runs a two-tier outgrower scheme on designated areas of our land. Smallholders: We work local farmers to improve farming practices and yield, while guaranteeing off-take of their produce by our processing plant. These farmers typically have less than 5 hectares, and benefit from our extension services and shared access to mechanization Mid and Large Scale: Experienced farmers can apply to lease areas of a few-hundred to a few thousand hectares on our land. We work with these farmers to develop a farming plan that aligns with our seasonal processing needs. This is an opportunity for aspiring entrepreneurs to run their own agricultural business with simpler access to land and mechanization. We always welcome new farmers.
