The current recession in Nigeria has resulted in many Nigerians having a renewed interest in Agriculture and Agribusiness.

With the instability in FOREX having its toll on Importers and the difficulty in assessing FOREX for import, most companies and businesses are now looking towards Agriculture and Agribusiness as a veritable means of earning foreign exchange, hence diversification into Agriculture and Agribusiness.

Also, with the high cost of imported foods items, efforts are being made locally to improve and increase food production at the local level.

The most prominent Agribusiness and Farming areas that have attracted the interest of Nigerians the most include;

  • Agro commodities Investment and Export
  • Poultry Farming (Broilers and Layers)
  • Fish Farming (Catfish Farming being most prominent)
  • Snail Farming
  • Crops Production (Maize, Cassava, Soybean, Tomato, Vegetables etc)
  • Greenhouse Farming

However, while it is most commendable that most Nigerians are taking shots at Agriculture and Agribusiness, a greater percentage of those who have invested in these farming and Agribusiness areas have done so with a very limited knowledge and information of what obtains and what they should in the sector to ensure profitability.

In most cases, most new entrants into Agribusiness and farming only get to learn through bitter on the farm experience resulting to loss of capital and eventual loss of interest in Agriculture and farming.

In most cases, the key questions of Costing, Business plan, How much money needed, Marketing opportunities, Assess to market, Processing Opportunities, Expected Pitfall, Challenges, Yield and Estimates, analysis on profitability, analysis of one sector over the other and other key relevant key factors required for profitable investment are not taken into consideration by new entrants and prospective investors.
