The Nigerian Agriculture Industry
Author: adaranijo adeshwa | January 22, 2013

Agriculture is the art and science of producing lands or crops and animal that is for manís use, which is for food and other purposes. The Northern people are known to rear livestock, the Fulani. But the Hausa are known for growing onions, tomatoes, oranges due to their climate and weather condition. The Yorubas are known for farming. Same goes with the Igbo people of Nigeria

Long before petroleum was first found in Oloibiri in Bayelsa state, Nigerians basically depended on agriculture, some did livestock farming, some dealt with only crops and some did the two. Whichever way they chose was suitable for the weather of where they live. The agricultural sector although people donít think it as important but it is the back bone of the Nigerian economy. Where will the whole of Nigeria get food from if there is nothing called agriculture.

Nowadays, people have shifted they attention from agriculture as it was before to petroleum, but care must be taken and it must be noted that if we all move attention to crude oil it will not only affect the nation health wise it will affect the economy of the nation. It must be noted that if too much attention is given to other sectors of the economy and none to the agriculture it will lead to stunted growth that is there will be nothing called agriculture after sometime

Agriculture has created job opportunities for many youth. Many youthsthat would have been jobless due to high labor market but because of agriculture many who would have still be roaming the streets of Lagos and the streets of Nigeria are now better persons today
