Agriculture has been the topmost priority of every
successive administration Nigeria.
This is due to the fact that the extent of development of a nation is also
measured interims of the quality and quantity of food available to her people.
Though the struggle at improving food status has been on course before
intendance. It reminds us of 1959, when the western government grated
agriculture land mark and sent a representative to Israel who brought the form
settlement scheme modeled after the Israel Mosheim. As a result other regional
government embraced the idea and established form settlement various part of
their region. But due to the discovery of crude oil that led to the temporary
abandonment of primary production of food by the government there was a
negative attitude toward farming and rapid pursuit of quick money led to
drastic drop in production, there Nigeria stated importing foods from developed
countries which brought a great set back to over economy. The factor that led
to the fall of farm facilities such as improper construction of residential,
lack of maintains culture.

Farm Settlement is modern village where building
were erected for farmer with different infrastructural amenities such
electricity, school, Hospital for purpose of agriculture.
The board aim of farm settlement embraces all the
productive occupations of man in which he works with nature s in order to make
his plant and animal grow better , so that they may products, which he
A farmer plants his crops at the beginning of the
rainy season and lets than grow with the rains, but he may plant tree to check the fprce of the
wind or build shed to protect his animals from harsh weather conditions, a
farmer grows his plants and animals with the
express purposed of harvesting them. It is clean from the above that any
treatment of farming should including growing crops and rearing livestock.
1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Something collect the farm settlement Revolution,
was the world’s first historically verifiable revolution in agriculture. It was
the wide scale transition of many human cultures from a life style of hunting
and gathering to one of agriculture and settlement which supported an
increasingly large population.
However the revolution involved far more than the
adoption of a limited set of food producing techniques during the next millennia
it would Trans form the small and mobile groups of hunter gathers that had
hither to dominate. Sedentary societies based in built up villages and towns,
which radically modified their natural environment by means of specialized food
crop cultivated (e.g. irrigation and food storage technologies that allowed
expensive surplus food production.)
PROBLEM OF STATE FACING FARM SETTLEMENT
There are many problem facing farm settlement
today’s world these problem include:
The migrations of young people which can leave the
area in question with an ageing population, which can infect harm the area
because the area can deteriorate without the input of new generations. Farm
In many farm settlement area, there is very high
dependence of agriculture most of the terms as their main source of income and
this can also be attributed to the low level of basic and manufacturing
Finally a very important problem facing farm
settlement is the lack of investment being put into these areas without investment
many farms and business can die and this would leave the town community in an
even worse states.
The motivation behind investment in research and
development come from a commitment to the development of a world leading,
sustainable and profitable aquaculture industry injecting in as well as the
families commitment to the social and economic welfare of their community
significant contribution rural sector investment.
It refined packaging developing an innovation and
Agriculture had been abandon since time age but the
government thought of it recently in
july ,2003 and came up with a programmed called “BACK TO FARM SCHEME” with the
purpose of reviving agriculture . As a
result, this project(Farm Settlement} was chose to support and complement
government ‘s effort in the development
of agriculture. Such as increasing food production and ensuring food
sufficiency for all, providing gainful employment for teeming unemployment

1.3 AIM AND OBJECTIVE
AIM OF THE PROJECT
To design a standard farm settlement to efficiently
accommodate the required livestock and human begins.
To design a settlement that will create human and
To design stable structure that will enhance easy
1.5 LIMITATION OF SYUDY
In the farm settlement design, there is a limit to
some extent within my scope and limitation there are some other thing which
cannot be include in order to avoid high cost in erecting the project due to
high cost of material.
EXPECTED COTRIBUTION TO THE BODY OF
The Nigerian livestock industry is performing below
expectation in its role of providing adequate animal protein for the grow thing
population while annual population growth rate is about 3.0% estimate annual
growth rate of the output of the major livestock product is nearly stagnant
also the contribution of the livestock subsection of the gross domestic product
(GDP) has been declining
1.6 RESEARCH METHODOLOGY
In order to have a well functioning farm settlement
that people will appreciate it is necessary to know what the people especially
the farmer want and what is require of a farm settlement this is done in this
To interview a number of people in the state to know
what is expected of farm settlement people to be interview range from sub
section farmer to commercial farmer this will help a lot in the design of the
Visiting the existing one to know what is required
and their merit and demerit.
Consultation of some architecture text book in order
to know what is expected of farm building or farm house. among the books are ARCHITECT DATA by Ernst neuter farm
building by john wale poultry production in warm wet climate by J A oluyemi and
FA Roberts and the complete book of raising live stock and poultry by katie
tear and for Alistair teaser
Conclusively, more than this, these are the need to
evolve a new design guideline that would ensure formational as well as
appropriate from settlement. This been the thrust of the research aspect of
Ludwig Mies Vander Rohe described very succinctly
the valve of Architectural his famous pronouncement that in Architecture “less
is more” is demonstrated in his design which as simple and have exposed
structural simple and have exposed structural element serving as aesthetic as
well as a functional purpose, it is believed that the design consideration
allowed would ensure that the design achieved and the final design for the
proposed project would thoroughly befit what Mis Vander Role would “less is
1.10 LITERATURE REVIEW AND CASE STUDIES
It is important to know about crops
which the Nigerian farmers grows, the condition under which they are grown and
their important in the economy but, only oblique reference were made to the
methods a farmer uses, and a little was said of the problems he encounters, the
local method of farming in Nigeria was little variation from what obtains in
other parts of Africa.
They derive raw materials from
agriculture conducted for the most part
by peasants cultivators.
A peasant cultivator is a person who
depends on his labour to assist him put such hired labour is of minor
importance in the economy.
Mostly, peasants farmer depends on hoe
and cutlass for practically all the farm operations. These tools vary in shape
and size from place. In the high forest zone of the country, the small farmers
must clear thick push every three or four years. Each year he must clear
prepare heaps for yams and ridges for crops like maize, groundnut, cassava,
guinea corn and this is done with the aid of hoe.
harvest the crude tools are used. The work involved is hard, demanding and
relatively unproductive when compared with mechanized system of farming.
