Agriculture in Nigeria

Agriculture is one of the most important sectors of Nigeria’s economy. More that 70% of the labor force is concentrated in the agriculture sector. It mostly depends on the small and scattered agricultural farms. The products that they yield are divided into two groups – food crops and industrial crops. The latter can also be referred to as cash crops or export crops.

More than 30% of the population are employed thanks to the agriculture sector. Around 33% of the land area in Nigeria is under cultivation. Around two-thirds of the crops production is contributed by small farms. They use simple production techniques, and usually, the areas are no bigger than two hectares. Farmers either use food crops for home consumption or sale. They spend a lot of time on the farm – usually, it can be the only source of food and money. The agriculture sector of Nigeria is improving rapidly. The government is making efforts in order to develop the agriculture sector. There are some industrial improvements that will make crops cultivation cheaper and easier.
