What happens if the farm I sponsored is badly run or if the harvest is lost?
FarmChiefs has a team of Agric professionals and technical partners whose primary responsibility is to ensure that our farms follow standard farm management practices whilst employing the most modern farming techniques, improved seedlings and modern farm equipment; to ensure that we have the best farm yields.
We however are not ignorant of the peculiarity of the sector in which we operate, therefore we have taken adequate measures by insuring all our farm projects to mitigate against any unforeseen risks that could lead to loss of the sponsor’s capital.
How do I follow up on my Investment?
FarmChiefs is built to give Farm Sponsors periodic updates; we send bi-weekly updates for farm cycles which are 6 months and less and we can send monthly updates for farm cycles which exceed 6 months. Farm updates are written reports, pictures and videos showing the progress being made at different stages of the farm cycle.
