There are things that school doesn’t teach us. It is true that it has the role to prepare us for the career we chose, therefore most of the times we memorise by heart definitions, theories and formulas. We have been taught complicated things, just because sometimes it sounds better, during my entire life, I can barely recall most of them, However, I have learnt that agriculture doesn’t require one to know by heart hundreds of books but instead it requires some passion and determination and everything else follows.
I remember a question that our professors used to ask us in the first year of university; Why did you choose to do agriculture? It was quite funny because most students, myself included, were asking ourselves the same question and for some I think they are still doing it. However, at that time I thought that there was a specific answer they were expecting to hear so, I kept searching for the right answer during my four years at the university. And guess what? There isn’t a right answer as to why you should start doing agriculture. You either do it because you need a job, because you came from a family where agriculture is a tradition or like me because you want and you can (you love it).
