Agriculture has been the topmost priority of every successive administration Nigeria. This is due to the fact that the extent of development of a nation is also measured interims of the quality and quantity of food available to her people. Though the struggle at improving food status has been on course before intendance. It reminds us of 1959, when the western government grated agriculture land mark and sent a representative to Israel who brought the form settlement scheme modeled after the Israel Mosheim. As a result other regional government embraced the idea and established form settlement various part of their region. But due to the discovery of crude oil that led to the temporary abandonment of primary production of food by the government there was a negative attitude toward farming and rapid pursuit of quick money led to drastic drop in production, there Nigeria stated importing foods from developed countries which brought a great set back to over economy. The factor that led to the fall of farm facilities such as improper construction of residential, lack of maintains culture.

Farm Settlement is modern village where building were erected for farmer with different infrastructural amenities such electricity, school, Hospital for purpose of agriculture.
The board aim of farm settlement embraces all the productive occupations of man in which he works with nature s in order to make his plant and animal grow better , so that they may products, which he harvests.
A farmer plants his crops at the beginning of the rainy season and lets than grow with the rains, but he may plant tree to check the fprce of the wind or build shed to protect his animals from harsh weather conditions, a farmer grows his plants and animals with the express purposed of harvesting them. It is clean from the above that any treatment of farming should including growing crops and rearing livestock.
1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Something collect the farm settlement Revolution, was the world’s first historically verifiable revolution in agriculture. It was the wide scale transition of many human cultures from a life style of hunting and gathering to one of agriculture and settlement which supported an increasingly large population.
However the revolution involved far more than the adoption of a limited set of food producing techniques during the next millennia it would Trans form the small and mobile groups of hunter gathers that had hither to dominate. Sedentary societies based in built up villages and towns, which radically modified their natural environment by means of specialized food crop cultivated (e.g. irrigation and food storage technologies that allowed expensive surplus food production.)
PROBLEM OF STATE FACING FARM SETTLEMENT
There are many problem facing farm settlement today’s world these problem include:
The migrations of young people which can leave the area in question with an ageing population, which can infect harm the area because the area can deteriorate without the input of new generations. Farm settlement.
In many farm settlement area, there is very high dependence of agriculture most of the terms as their main source of income and this can also be attributed to the low level of basic and manufacturing industry.
Finally a very important problem facing farm settlement is the lack of investment being put into these areas without investment many farms and business can die and this would leave the town community in an even worse states.
The motivation behind investment in research and development come from a commitment to the development of a world leading, sustainable and profitable aquaculture industry injecting in as well as the families commitment to the social and economic welfare of their community significant contribution rural sector investment.
It refined packaging developing an innovation and successful.
