PROBLEMS OF AGRICULTURE

In spite of the fact that more 60% of the total population of West Africa is involved in agriculture, small scale farming still exists and their productivity is low compared with some advanced nations where less than 20% of their population engage in agriculture and produce enough food for rest of the population.

 

This can be attributed to the following reasons –

  1. The use of crude implements such as hoes and cutlasses.
  2. Unstable government policies.
  3. Illiteracy and ignorance.
  4. Lack of medical facilities in the farm setting.
  5. Inadequate credit facilities.
  6. Little or lack storage facilities.
  7. Bad road and poor transportation system.
  8. Problems of land tenure system.
