Abstract

The major objective of the present research was to examine the structure and performance of the marketing systems for four major staple foods in Northern Nigeria. The study was concerned with the extent to which these marketing systems have, in general terms, promoted the optimal allocation of resources and thus facilitated what has been referred to as "agriculture's contributions to economic development"(4 P. 571).

Item Type: Thesis (PhD)
