The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation says Low crop yields, post-harvest losses, food safety concerns, and weak implementation of relevant policies, among others, are the reasons for agricultural product stagnation in Nigeria,

It said this was part of findings contained in the latest Nigeria Food System Assessment Profile that was conducted in 2022, which was a joint initiative launched by the European Union, FAO, French Research Centre for Agricultural Development, in collaboration with the government of Nigeria.

The UN agency said Nigeria’s population was estimated to hit 400 million by 2050, but noted that large food deficits remained a cardinal challenge to the food system.
