1.1 Background of the Study
on peanut commonly called the poor man’s nut is an important oil seed and food
crop for millions of people in the semi and tropic. It generate employment on
the farm during cultivation and in agro – processing (CGIAR, 2005) it is the 13th
most important food crop of the world and the most important source of edible
oil, it’s seed contain high quality edible oil (50%) easily digestible protein
(25%) and carbohydrate (20%) (FAO, 2007).
soon it is an essential food product and enjoys good patronage in both domestic
and international market as a veritable source of edible oil animal feed and
also consumed as snacks (Nnamdi, 2010).
is grown mostly by small holder farmer and almost 70% of the crop is grown in
central Malawi. However, many farmers including estate farmer are realizing the
importance of groundnut, especially with the unfavorable tobacco. Market, the
introduction of suouneyn yielding groundnut varieties as CG7 coupled with the
effort of various non-government organizations (NGOs) and research and
development organization seed production and delivery have played an important
role in promoting groundnut production in the country (F.A.O 2000).
is one of the most popular commercial crops Nigeria which accounted for 70% of
the total Nigeria effort earning between 1956 and 1967 but declined between
1995 and mid 1980, due to combine effect of fraught and disease (faru etal
to (Adebayo etal 2008) over 330 product of groundnut commercially produced from
groundnut and can be directly created from massive groundnut production with
small improvement in the technology and the use of impaired variety with
corresponding increase of cultivated hecterief.
is the fourth largest producer of groundnut with proportion of 4.54% of the
total world production (Trade Invest Nigeria 2010 USDA 2008/2009). In West
Africa Nigeria produce 4140 of the total groundnut production (Echekwu and
had primarily n effort of agricultural commodities is source of both internal
and foreign exchange before the oil coomera (Adeayo et al 2008). Before the
word want, Nigeria groundnut figured prominently in world and a country for 29%
of Africa export and 60% of the world export. In the 1950z Nigeria contributed
50% of the African export and 36% of the world export Nigeria produce 46% of
the total groundnut production in West African (F.A 2002).
is an important legume crop in the small holder agricultural income until late
1980s groundnut was fourth most important export crop product after tobacco.
Sugar and tea (Bcbu et al 2000). The htulon area rich protect feed for
livestock. The crop is a valuable component in maize (Zea mag) base cropping
system and improve soil fertility (chiyembekeza et al 1999).
1.4 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
has substantial economic potential in its agriculture, section; however despite
the importance of agriculture in term of employment creation, its potential for
contributing to economic growth is far from being fully exploited. It has been
observed that these sector’s important has fluctuated with the rise and fall in
oil level over the past ten year, the Nigerian agriculture sector has remained
stagnant while the contribution of the manufacturing sector to the GDP had
decline over the same period. Inappropriate macro-economic and sector, policies
perpetuated by the 15years of military rule and mismanagement have had a
negative impact not only on agriculture, but also on the entire economy
consequently, per capital income have decline from approximately 25% in the
1955 to about 1980 (Nnamdi 2010).
as a result of the considerable magnitude of poverty in the country
particularly in the rural areas, this has raised expectation for quick
improvement is the live hoods of general populace. Data from the federal office
for statistics (F.O.A 2000) indicate that poverty level in the country have
been on the increase since 1986. (
OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY
main objective of this study is to determine the economic analysis of groundnut
production in Oyo state while the specific objectives are;
To determine the socio economic
characteristic of respondent
To determine the cost and return of
To determine the problem of groundnut
OF THE STUDY
available of raw material at low price; hence the head for more efficient
introduction of new processing technologies and more productive cultivation
method need to be synchronized and there is an urgent need for a collaborative
approach involving farmer. Processor developing community and policy maker,
development agencies should focus effort at these location and in those
communities where the private section is prepared to made significant
investment (Mary et al 2000).
