A note on the operational framework for agricultural research in Nigeria: commodity versus ecology



A note on the operational framework for agricultural research in Nigeria: commodity versus ecology



Nigerian Journal of Economic and Social Studies 28(3): 409-414



This paper makes a case for the reorganization of agricultural research in Nigeria, which will enable research institutes to better focus on specific ecological zones (as opposed to the present commodity bias). It is argued that the new system, if adopted would facilitate resource substitution between crops and as a result increase the overall efficiency of research.
