Economic analysis of drylands farming in Nigeria with special reference to the accelerated wheat production programme in Kano and Kaduna states

Economic analysis of drylands farming in Nigeria with special reference to the accelerated wheat production programme in Kano and Kaduna states

Working Paper Series African Arid Lands, Scandinavian Institute of African Studies ( 3/93): 17pp.

The Accelerated Wheat Production Programme (AWPP) is Nigeria's latest effort to attain self-sufficiency and self-reliance in wheat production after the ban on importation of wheat and wheat-related products in 1986. The programme aims at mobilizing the indigenous small-scale farmers, using small irrigation pumps, the provision of the necessary farm inputs at subsidized rates, extension services and attractive commodity prices.
