1. CASSAVA FARMING
Over the years, cassava has transformed from
being a subsistence crop to an industrial
cash crop, as it is being processed to
products such as starch, flour, glucose and
ethanol. This transition has placed demand
on cassava, thus creating opportunities for
youths, entrepreneurs, marketers and
Recently, the International Institute of
Tropical Agriculture (IITA) and the Nigerian
Root Crops Research Institute (NRCRI),
Umudike, released two improved varieties of
cassava: UMUCASS 42 and UMUCASS 43.
Potential maximum yield of the two varieties
is between 49 and 53 tonnes per hectare,
according to pre-varietal release trials that
were conducted between 2008 and 2010 by
the NRCRI breeder, Dr Chiedozie Egesi. Local
varieties produce less than 10 tonnes per
The varieties are also resistant to major pests
and diseases that affect cassava in the
country, including cassava mosaic disease,
cassava bacterial blight, cassava anthracnose,
cassava mealybug and cassava green mite.
Cassava cultivation is about the cheapest in
that it requires minimum cost of production.
With or without fertiliser, cassava grows and
produces tubers, though fertiliser enhances
greater yields. The new and improved
varieties take a period of between seven and
nine months to mature and they are good for
high quality cassava flour; high dry matter,
which is positively related to starch and
crucial for cassava value chain development;
high leaf retention, which is positively related
to drought tolerance and is crucial for
cassava production in the arid regions and in
mitigating the impact of climate change, and
moderate levels of beta carotene for
Commercial production requires hiring
tractors and the use of herbicides in weed
control, as well as application of fertiliser for
maximum yield per hectare of farmland.
Tractor hiring services are available at most
local government area offices at affordable
rate per hour/day. Land preparation,
according farmers and experts, is the most
important and expensive aspect of
cultivation. An alternative is hiring the service
of labourers who prepare the land manually,
but at slower rate. Herbicides which control
only weeds are used, thus eliminating stress
and drudgery of manual weed control.
Improved cassava stems are readily available
at some institutes and their out-grower
partners at ridiculously affordable prices.
Vitamin A and Vitamin C fortified cassava
varieties have also been developed.

3. RESELLING AND EXPORT OF CHARCOAL.
Buy Charcoal from the rural areas and resell
in the cities
Do you know that you can make 100% profit if you buy your charcoal from the farm or production site and sell to the retailers; a bag of charcoal (32 to 35kg bag) is being sold for N450 to N550 from the farm, while the retailers sell to the final consumer at N1000 to N1,500 per bag.
All you need to do is to buy the charcoal from the farmers and bring it down to the major cities like Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt and resell to the retailers. But it is advisable to find out if they have an association in your vicinity, joining the
association will allow you to operate with peace of mind.

industry and a money spinner for interested

8.URBAN AGRICULTURE OR CROP
The trending challenge and impact of rural-
urban migration have continued to
generate great debates since the last three
decades. Urban employment problems are
a result of the phenomenal growth in
urbanization and the inability of these
urban centers to be able to utilize or
absorb the urban labor that was created
through the process of urbanization.
Approximately 50% of Nigerians are urban
dwellers. At least 24 cities have
populations of more than 100,000 Those
moving from rural to urban areas
constitute certain classes, categories and
strata of the society that are basically
plagued with certain social and economic
problems in which poverty ranks highest
and most fundamental.
So without wasting your time, this article
will highlight in details, some lucrative
business ideas and opportunities you can
engage in in towns or villages rather than
Urban agriculture is the practice of
cultivating, processing and distributing
food in, or around, a village, town or city.

involve animal husbandry, aquaculture,
agro-forestry and horticulture. Urban
agriculture contributes to food security
and food safety in two ways:
First it increases the amount of food
available to people living in cities and
Secondly, it allows fresh vegetables and fruits
and meat products to be made available to
urban consumers. Urban and peri-urban
agriculture are generally seen as

Rabbit do not compete with humans for food,
as kitchen leftovers, cut grasses and formulated
or compounded feed can sustain them. Rabbit

investment and maintenance.
As little space is needed, most rabbits could be
kept in the backyard or in the abandoned sheds.

12. Mushroom Farming
Mushrooms are natural phenomenon that can
give you much money. The untapped potential of
these fungi is so much that if you invest on the
venture, your room can no longer be your bank.
Mushrooms are rich in vitamins, protein and
minerals; they are favored over meat or even fish
by some people, considering the nutritional value
and superior health implications.
There are two main broad categories of
mushrooms; the edible and the non-edible
(which is poisonous).
The deliberate mushroom cultivation is therefore
essential to eliminate the imminent threat of
mistakenly gathering the dangerous type. The
start-up requirement are mushroom shed or
house, sawdust, Polythene bags, Spawns/
mushrooms seeds, Urea/nitrogen fertilizer,
Lime, water, ceiling machine, weighing
scale, extra hands, Refrigerator.

13. Grass cutter Farming
Grass cutter is the second largest rodent in
Nigeria and it is endemic to Africa. It breeds
successfully in captivity and is capable of
reproducing twice a year with litter size varying
from two to six.
They are primarily vegetarian and can be raised
to maturity entirely on fresh grasses. They prefer
plants with high moisture content and soluble
Field studies reveal that they do not burrow so
they may be caged or reared in a fenced pen on
the ground. Grass cutter is worth considering
for use in husbandry in the humid forest where
poor grazing and harsh environment limits the
performance of conventional livestock.
Ranching of grass cutter as a backyard mini
livestock would therefore improve the lot of the
peasant farmers, provide an alternative source of
animal protein, create job opportunities for

14. Herbs, Flowers Framing and
Walking through a grocery store, a herb store, a
health food store and even in gardening sections
of home centers, you will find herbs in their dry
forms to be used by consumers.
Using the right equipment in your home garage
or shed or by building a green house, you can
start and raise both herbs and plants to resell to
larger outlets and to the consumer as well.
Plants are the basis for all landscapes, homes,
gardens and even for brightening offices. You will
pay pennies for packets of seeds and make way
more when selling starter plants.
The more space you have, the better you are
going to do. If you really have the space in your
landscape and outdoor garden, creating gardens
where you will grow plants and drying them out
will add so much to your inventory and you can
make great amounts of money selling dried
flowers to retailers, wholesalers and even to
flower shops themselves.

15. Snail Farming
Snail meat has been severally affirmed as a
most safe and nutritious delicacy.
In these days of increased coronary implications
