Nigeria Is World’s Largest Producer Of Yam In FAO Ranking ― FG by BuhariCarryGo: 3:53pm On Nov 27, 2019
The Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), has ranked Nigeria as one of the World’s largest producers of Yam with about 60 per cent of the Global production of the product, the Permanent Secretary Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development Dr Mohammed Bello has said.

Dr Bello, disclosed this in Abuja at the National Awareness Workshop on Yam, organized by the Advocacy and Resource Mobilization Team (ARMT) of Yam Improvement for Income and Food Security in West Africa (YIIFSWA), an initiative of the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA).

The Permanent Secretary who was represented by the Director of Agriculture in the Ministry, Engr Frank Satumari Kudla, noted that though Nigeria produces about 64 per cent of Yam in the world, it is not among the Comity of Yam Exporting Nations owing to lack of quality seeds of improved varieties and efficient seed production.

He said that (IITA) under it’s (YIIFSWA) programme saw the need to develop High Ratio multiplication technologies such as seed multiplication system that is sustainable and capable of producing high-quality yam seeds at an affordable price to Farmers with high yielding potentials.

The Permanent Secretary also pointed out that, the current practice in Yam Seed production is at a Ratio of 1.1 within 12 Months but that the new technology will produce a 1.300 Ratio within six Months.

In his remark, the Commissioner of Agriculture, Enugu State, Idu Mathew, who was represented by Director Technical Resources, Mr Onuze Benjamin, said that “every country that exports its raw commodity, exports it’s Labour and every other thing that is good to the country

We are the largest producer of yam simply because we were not stupid enough to start importing yam.

If we put the same energy into banning importation of rice completely, then we will be self sufficient as well.

World producer of yam? FAO has started going blind. A mid size yam goes for N300-N500.

Anyway we will soon carry first on rice production.

We are the largest because we have the comparative advantage over other countries

But for rice m wheat we are disadvantaged

It would be economical wish if we put the energy in rice to cassava ..export the excess use it to buy rice n wheat

Well most buhari present supporters are socialist

Shut up and let adults discuss serious issues.
People import because it is cheaper.

People don't import crude oil, yam, and cocoa because they would run into a loss.

Apparently, that simple fact is too complex for you to understand yet you are not cursed.
