Primary Agricultural Production

The potential of the Niger Delta Region in the area of primary agricultural production is immense. It is important to reiterate the fact that just before the oil boom of the 1970s, over 50% of Nigeria’s foreign exchange earnings came from primary agricultural production.

Moreover, in the years preceding the glut, Nigerians were not under the threat of starvation due to the gaping food production deficit as they are today.
Suffice it to say that a good percentage of food production that earned good income fro the nation and secured her people from starvation was attributable mostly to rural farmers in the Niger Delta Region, with about 70% of the population involved.

The Niger Delta Region produces a variety of cash crops and food crops. The cash crops are palm fruits, from which palm oil and palm kernels are derived, rubber and cocoa as well as groundnuts and pineapples.
