So, you own a farm, and it lies fallow because you do not have anyone who is there to till, cultivate and farm its commercial value out of the ground into some crops and agricultural benefits for you?
Although you’re stranded, you don’t have to be since we have the solution for your problems regarding farm work and how to make the most of your arable and productive land.
Ladies and gentlemen, we introduce the solution to your needs, and this is the migrant farmworker.
Oh, that’s what we said: the migrant farmworker.
What is that, you ask.
Well, a migrant farmworker is simply a person who is required or allowed to be absent from a permanent or fixed place of residence to seek paid or gainful employment in agricultural work wherever it may be found.
Oh yes, it is a big deal, and these farmworkers are so in-demand that they are varied in what they are called.
As you know, having more than one name implies that your skills have varied utility.
“Migrant farmworkers” are also called “migratory agricultural workers” or “mobile workers”.
They are also known as “seasonal farmworkers”, which we have on offer as Explorer Dubai Ltd.
And, make no mistake, our farm workers do their utmost when, as individuals, they are employed in temporary farm work and do move from their permanent residence to seek farm work.
As a result, they may also have other sources of employment, but that cannot interfere with the work that they will trot out for our clients or customers.
Seasonal farmworkers are plenty, the world over, that’s because there are an estimated 570 million farms worldwide.
These farms need workers who store their crops on-farm.
Across the four seasons in the west, they spend winter shipping grain from their farm to ethanol plants, feed mills, and river terminals, where grain gets loaded onto barges and shipped as far as the most distant horizons.
These farmhands work with farm equipment like tractors and planters in preparation for spring tillage and planting.
In Uganda, a bimodal rainfall pattern spread over two growing seasons (May-May and September-December).
Among the numerous farmers in Uganda, diverse farming practices are used. They range from livestock-based systems in semi-arid areas such as the cattle corridor in Nakasongola to mixed crop-livestock systems in more humid regions like the Masaka district.
It is now estimated that there are over 2.4 million farmworkers in the USA alone. This figure comprises migrant, seasonal, year-round, and guest program workers.
