Agriculture in Nigeria: Setbacks and Solutions


So much has been said about reviving the agricultural sector and Nigeria government is working rigorously to ensure the success of this sector. There are certain  challenges that is encountered by  A griculture in Nigeria and the perception of Nigerians about farmers their profession and self actualisation and esteem needs is significantly shabby.  However in recent times some people of Nigeria have come to realise the importance of agriculture and wealth that lies therein.  This perception has in a way restricted youths from venturing into this profession.


Furthermore, Nigerians policies and structure are bottled-neck, bondage-like and lacks flexibility. Existing policies do little or no good as they are just the documents that are struggling to be fully implemented. In another light poor infrastructure has been whistled from time immemorial. It is only recently that a few percent  of farmers are going commercial. Most of the agricultural make up of Nigeria is predominantly subsistence, therefore low output. Also the Green sector and encounters dormant research facilities, education and modernisation.

A quick look implementation of viable solutions would bring a turn around of the nation's agricultural sector. Problems are easily noted but solutions are difficult to implement. Changing the orientations of an average Nigerian youth about farming would do a lot of good. This is where development communication specialists and order stakeholders come in.  The opportunities of agriculture and its reward to individuals and Nigeria should be highlighted. Farmers should be treated with more respect and dignity. Also trainings for farmers especially illiterates and semi-literates on farming dynamics, technical activities like servicing of machines and the likes.

Moreover,   The government should ensure a conducive environment for farming and environment here connotes two major forms:
-  physical environment
-  political environment
 Physical environment involves things like good transport facilities, good roads, farming environment and the likes. While political environment includes government policies on agricultural, reforms and acts that support effective farming activities in terms of taxing.
