The study examines agricultural research priorities in Nigeria, a relatively large food-deficit country, and the ability of agriculture to meet the country's requirements in the next three decades. Specifically, the study reviews the evolution and achievements of agricultural research; examines resource allocations to agricultural research for the various crops; and compares the amount of research resources allotted to export and food crops, crops, livestock, forestry, and fisheries, rainfed and irrigated agriculture, agricultural production, inputs, and multi-disciplinary systems; and the allocation of research facilities by region. It identifies major research needs in the light of available capabilities, indicates the Nigerian political and economic policies that affect the efficiency of the national agricultural research system, and makes policy recommendations for Nigeria that are relevant to other developing countries
