10 Low Cost Agribusiness Ideas To Try

1. Urban Agriculture or Crop Cultivation

Urban agriculture is the practice of cultivating, processing and distributing food in, or around, a village, town or city.

 Urban agriculture in addition can also involve animal husbandry, aquaculture, agro forestry and horticulture. 

Urban agriculture contributes to food security and food safety in two ways.

 First it increases the amount of food available to people living in cities and secondly, it allows fresh vegetables and fruits and meat products to be made available to urban consumers.


 Urban  agriculture is generally seen as sustainable agriculture.

2. Start Selling Fresh Fruits

Without any doubt, this is a business that should be checked out.

With a little professionalism and good public appearance or hygiene, you can make money in this business because a lot of people who live in most of our highbrow area, like to eat fresh fruits especially if it is neat.





 Some people even prefer it served chilled.

So if you have blenders and an extractor, then you are bound to make a lot of money.

A lot of people are tired of all these artificial juices in the market and I bet they will pay and still thank you for giving them the natural source of vitamins which is needed in this age of fast foods and artificial flavors.

3.  Rabbit Rearing

There is no law prohibiting the keeping of rabbits in Towns and Cities.

A backyard can serve as a good source of additional income, food and employment; thus reducing poverty, hunger and idleness.

 Rabbit do not compete with humans for food, as kitchen leftovers, cut grasses and formulated or compounded feed can sustain them.

Rabbit keeping does not require much capital for investment and maintenance.

As little space is needed, most rabbits could be kept in the backyard or in the abandoned sheds.

4. Foodstuff Retailing or Grocery Service

In today’s busy and sophisticated world, convenience has become a real business opportunity.

 Foodstuff like rice, beans yams plantain, potatoes, onions, pepper, oil etc.

These items can bought in bulk, cleaned and packaged in specific portions and sold direct to end users.

Many people who are unable to find time to shop will be relieved to know that they can just make a phone call and the groceries are delivered.

Get a list of people you know who may patronize you. If you can get them to pay up-front, then you are better up with cash flow.

5. Fish Farming

Over the years, quite a few people have made fortunes from fish farming, as the population is swelling and protein needs are far outstripping the available supply.

 Food is always a winner in any country or environment if done well.

Fish farming is a sure bet business if you put the right structures in place. More and more people are turning to fish for its low cholesterol protein.

 All you need to do is to get a space, buy or construct tanks, buy finger links for between N50 to N100 and feed them for 4 to 6 months, then sell from between N700 to N1,500 depending on weight and size.

 The breed of fish to train is your choice to make. You can choose to specialize on Catfish, Tilapia, etc.

6. Herbs, Flowers Framing and Gardening

Walking through a grocery store, a herb store, a health food store and even in gardening sections of home centers, you will find herbs in their dry forms to be used by consumers.

 Using the right equipment in your home garage or shed or by building a green house, you can start and raise both herbs and plants to resell to larger outlets and to the consumer as well.

Plants are the basis for all landscapes, homes, gardens and even for brightening offices.

You will pay pennies for packets of seeds and make way more when selling starter plants.

The more space you have, the better you are going to do.

If you really have the space in your landscape and outdoor garden, creating gardens where you will grow plants and drying them out will add so much to your inventory and you can make great amounts of money selling dried flowers to retailers, wholesalers and even to flower shops themselves.

7. Livestock Feed Production

The production process is not so difficult. The ingredients required are mainly, maize, soya beans, fish bone, sorghum, groundnut, blood meal, wheat, rice shaft, additives etc.

All these can be sourced from the market, any animal consult outlet, or any agricultural product shop around.

8. Setup a Small Poultry Farm

Technology has enabled many to operate profitable poultry, yet make it free of odor that a neighbor next door will not know you operate a poultry farm.

This is a business you can start from one room, car park or from that abandoned property near you with 50 to 500 birds.

9. Mushroom Farming

Mushrooms are natural phenomenon that can give you much money.

The untapped potential of these fungi is so much that if you invest on the venture, your room can no longer be your bank.

Mushrooms are rich in vitamins, protein and minerals; they are favored over meat or even fish by some people, considering the nutritional value and superior health implications.

The deliberate mushroom cultivation is therefore essential to eliminate the imminent threat of mistakenly gathering the dangerous type.

The start-up requirement are mushroom shed or house, sawdust, Polythene bags, Spawns/mushrooms seeds, Urea/nitrogen fertilizer, Lime, water, ceiling machine, weighing scale, extra hands, Refrigerator.

10.  Basket and Broom Production

Since baskets are produced in various sizes, they help the farmers to grade his brands of product for easy pricing.

 Our concern here is how to convert palm front and leaves to finished product for economic and commercial gains.
