INTRODUCTION

1.1       Background of the Study

In the colonial Nigeria, agriculture occupied a centre stage in economic activities. At independence, in the decade of the 1960s, the sector continued to enjoy this status and was seen as the mainstay of the economy as the objective of the first development plan (1962 – 1968) showed, therefore, the contribution of the agricultural sector during this decade to Gross Domestic Product (GDP) range from 561%, 61.22%, 66.77% and 63.4% from 1960 – 1967 (Ayadi, 1998: 123). However, the contribution drastically declined in the 1970 because of the oil boom and negligence of the agricultural sector.
