RESEARCH OBJECTIVES

For more detailed information about our research in Nigeria, download our country brochure. 

APRA is working in Nigeria to conduct quantitative and qualitative research to:

  • Document the pace at which farm size distributions are changing in Nigeria, with particular focus on the rise of medium-scale farms and their influence on agricultural commercialisation;
  • Characterise the potentially diverse pathways by which individuals become commercialised medium-scale farmers;
  • Explore whether medium-scale farms are making small-scale farmers more productive and commercialised;
  • Examine the outcomes of various agricultural commercialisation pathways;
  • Assess the causes and consequences of changing farm size distributions.
