PROBLEM AND CHALLENGES AFFECTING SMALL SCALE GINGER FARMERS (ZINGIBER OFFICINALE) IN NIGERIA

33

Introduction

Ginger production has not been an exception to Nigeria’s falling agricultural performance, as it has not been able to reach its full potential as an export crop and a key foreign cash generator. According to Sunday et al. (2014), one of the problems restricting higher productivity was the lack of scientific studies on the supply system to back up farmers’ efforts. The trend and output supply reaction to price and other variables may have a detrimental impact on Nigerian ginger production. According to Emmanuel (2008), in response to the declining fortunes of ginger production in Nigeria, governments have implemented a variety of policies, programs, and projects targeted at revitalizing ginger output. There has been no research.
