In this recent, various levels of government had been encouraging farming and mostly amongst women, youths, this has endeared most school leavers to venture into farming at different levels and class, this as a nation, we assume is to enhance food security in Nigeria in order to make food available to Nigerians in all our communities, but how?
Nigeria can no longer show a nonchalant attitude to Agriculture, because an improved agricultural sector trickles down to every part of our economy; resulting to cheaper food, less farm produce wastage, better employment rate among others.
Beyond food production, the impact in terms of increased industrialization through food processing, increased revenue for the government to provide good roads, water and social amenities for rural communities and increased export trade which leads to better foreign exchange and economic viability cannot be overemphasised.

A typical example of this prevalent situation is cassava to mention just one farm produce.
Currently we have farmers, processors and buyers within our agribusiness network. In Nigeria—the world’s largest cassava producer (more than 20 percent of global production, producing more than 50 million tons annually)—nearly 30 million smallholder farmers grow cassava. There’s limited access to existing varieties of cassava, almost no preservation from harvesting to processing, a most processing unit is far away from farm settlement, which leads to spoilage, unfortunately, and this root crop has a very short shelf life and, if unprocessed, will spoil within 72 hours after harvest.
