Agriculture remains the bedrock of Nigerian economy generating about 70% of employment and constituting over 40% of the Gross Domestic Product {GDP} of the country.

The country has a land area of 98.3m hectares. At present about 34m hectares or 48% are under cultivation leaving a good portion uncultivated. There is no doubt that considering the vast area of uncultivated land coupled with the natural fertility of its soil, Nigeria has great agricultural potentials.

To say then, that Nigeria’s economy is agrarian does not mean that Nigeria is agriculturally advanced. Peasant farming characterizes agricultural practice in Nigeria.

Farming families engage in subsistence farming in which family needs determine the scale of production and wherein small plots of land are cultivated by individual owners or sub-owners following age-old methods without much control on the yields. Family farming uses mainly family labor which could be augmented with minor hiring of labor and labor exchanges with other farmers at peak seasons.

The essential factors of production – land, labor, and capital are provided within the family. This system does not make adequate use of modern farming techniques, capital input, advisory services and market information.

The technology of production is not modern and involves a lot of drudgery. Also there is the problem of lack of or inadequate infrastructural facilities. This type of peasant agriculture involves 95% of Nigerian farmers, while farmers employed on corporate and government supported large-scale farms account for only 5 percent.

This situation therefore presents a viable opportunity for savvy investors to take advantage of the opportunity presented by providing agricultural equipment for leasing in Nigeria.

Some of the equipment that can be leased includes


Processing Equipments

Some of the incentives the government has put in place to encourage investment in the agricultural sector in Nigeria includes

o Finance Credit
