0 178

In collaboration with the Federal Government, the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations has chosen 13 states for intervention in relation to the production of a few specific crops, such as rice, sorghum, soybean, etc., and dairy.

The choice of states for the intervention, was made on the basis of each state’s potential for import substitution, export promotion, comparative advantage, social inclusion, and demand gap on a national, continental, and global scale.

States with ‘potential’, or those that are highly market-oriented and have higher investment rates, are the guiding variables.
