Entrepreneurship, Agricultural Value-Chain and Exports in Nigeria
This research looked at entrepreneurship, agricultural value chain and exports in Nigeria. Questionnaire and focus group discussion/interview were used to gather data for the study. Descriptive methods of analysis were used. The results of the data analysis and interpretation revealed that entrepreneurship contributes significantly to agricultural innovation and value-added production in Nigeria. It is also noted that the prospects include the ability to increase employment opportunities, increase agricultural exports, the potential for increased foreign earnings, and the ability to improve citizens’ living standards. High levels of corruption, insufficient infrastructure, a lack of innovation, a poorly developed agricultural research system, and a lack of capital are among the major challenges. As a result, the study recommends, among other things, that entrepreneurship be encouraged in agriculture by eliminating the above challenges and bottlenecks.
