Case study of rice production systems in Nigeria

Working papers

Although rice is a traditional crop in Nigeria, local production was limited until recently. Internal demand is growing and, at the same time, rice is a major commodity of world trade. Nigeria is therefore under pressure from international bodies not to restrict imports; production under local conditions to match prices of rice
produced on large mechanised farms therefore represents a considerable challenge.
